Welcome to the Kansas City Chapter!
Thank you for visiting the Kansas City Chapter of the FSHD Society which officially launched in August 2019. 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.
Thank you for supporting the Walk & Roll in 2022!
A huge THANK YOU to everyone who walked, rolled, and donated for this year's virtual Walk & Roll to Cure FSHD!
