Welcome to the Pacific Northwest Chapter!
Thank you for visiting the Pacific Northwest Chapter of the FSHD Society which officially launched in April 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.
Though our Chapter officially launched in 2019, we held a Walk & Roll to Cure FSHD in 2018 in Puyallup, WA, and raised over $20,000! Here are some photos of that great event:
