Welcome to the Columbus Chapter!
Thank you for visiting the Columbus Chapter of the FSHD Society, established July 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.
We Want to Hear From You!!!
Whether you have attended all our chapter meetings and the walk & roll, or none of them, we want to hear from you. The chapter is here for YOU! Tell us what you are looking for, want and/or need from your local FSHD Chapter.
Our 2020 Walk & Roll has gone VIRTUAL! Please join us, and invite your family and friends from wherever they are to join us too!
We will "see" you on Saturday, September 12, 2020 - when all of our Chapters nationwide will join together!
