The ataxia’s are a rare group of neurological conditions that affect (amongst other things) balance, coordination, and speech. There are many different types of ataxia that can affect people in different ways.
A recent poll showed that only 10% of the UK population have heard of ataxia. On 25th September every year, we ask our Friends to get involved and help spread the word of ataxia, in a bid to up this statistic!
International Ataxia Awareness Day (IAAD) is our opportunity, as the ataxia community, to change this! To tell the world who we are, what ataxia is and why understanding the condition is so important. It’s a chance to make a big difference!
Please let us know how you plan to spread the word by emailing us on email@example.com
