FSHD is highly variable, even among affected family members. Each person possesses a unique combination of genetic and environmental factors that influence his or her body and health in general and FSHD in particular.
To crack the code of FSHD, patients are essential. All the breakthroughs in FSHD have been made because patients and their family members got involved. We are hopeful that a treatment is within sight and your participation will move us closer to discovery.
There is great power in community. When we come together, each bringing our own unique strengths and skills, we inspire each other to go farther and reach higher than we can when we go it alone.
