STARS For FSH

STARS for FSH

Hello Friends and Family! This year the Los Angeles Chapter of the FSH Society is having its first ever "Walk & Roll" fundraising event on October 27 at Wilson Park in Torrance. I need you to join my team! The money we're raising by participating in this Walk & Roll is supporting programs and funding research that will directly impact patients and their families living with FSH Muscular Dystrophy (FSHD).

Facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy, or FSHD, is a genetic disorder that leads to the weakening of skeletal muscles. It affects an estimated 1 in 8,000 individuals, or 870,000 people worldwide. Around 20 percent will need a wheelchair by age 50. Over 70 percent experience debilitating pain and fatigue. There is no effective treatment or cure—but there is hope. As many of you know, several of my family members are impacted by this neuromuscular disease.

Thank you for your support! - STARS for FSH
