Welcome to the Central Texas Chapter!
Thank you for visiting the Central Texas Chapter of the FSHD Society which officially launched in March 2020. 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 Central Texas area are to:
- Increase awareness and educate families throughout Central Texas.
- 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!
On Saturday, September 18, walkers and rollers stepped out to say "FSHD Ends with Me!" at the annual CenTex Walk & Roll. Our local event raised nearly $77,000 towards the campaign total, through participants and teams from across the state.
Stay tuned as we begin the planning for our 2022 Walk & Roll to Cure FSHD!
