Welcome to the Bay Area Chapter!
Thank you for visiting the Bay Area Chapter of the FSHD Society! 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.
Mark your calendar for Sunday, September 24th, 2023 for our Annual Bay Area Walk & Roll to Cure FSHD. Location to be announced soon! Walk & Roll to Cure FSHD is an event that unites the FSHD community to raise awareness of FSHD and move us closer to our goal of disease-modifying treatments to families by 2025. Help us meet our fundraising goal of $50,000 this year and light the way to a cure!
