Welcome to the Atlanta Chapter!
Thank you for visiting the Atlanta Chapter of the FSHD Society which officially launched in October 2018. We are here to build a local community of patients, family and friends, and help them connect and advocate for themselves and each other. Our hope for the future is to find a cure – Until then, we hope to bring a greater awareness to the community, and to help improve the quality of life of all those affected.
The goals of the Chapter Program here in the Greater Atlanta area are to:
- Increase awareness and educate families throughout Georgia.
- Help build connections among patients, care givers, health care providers and others affected by this disease.
- Harness the power of those shared connections allowing us all to gain strength, support and encouragement as we push forward in finding a cure for FSH.
- Last but not least let’s HAVE SOME FUN while we accomplish these goals!
Our 2020 Virtual Walk & Roll was fantastic, thanks to all of you! Our chapter overcame all the obstacles 2020 threw at us. You invited your family and friends and they showed up!
On Saturday, September 12, 2020 we joined with Chapters nationwide to celebrate in a 4-hour Facebook livestream event. It was awesome.
Did you participate? You can still earn some great rewards. The deadline for prizes is September 25th. Have some fun pictures or video to share? Add them to our google folder HERE
