Facioscapulohumeral Muscular Dystrophy is highly variable, even among affected family members. Each person possesses a unique combination of genetic and environmental factors that influence his or her body and health in general and related to their FSHD.

These activities are aimed at supporting the community in taking care of physical and mental health during this stressful time, while also feeding the collective hunger for more information and knowledge about research.
