Ataxia awareness day is held on 25 September every year. Ataxia is a rare progressive disorder of the nervous system that affects balance, coordination and speech. As the condition progresses sight, hearing and the heart can be affected. Ataxia can strike at any time regardless of age, gender or race. There is no treatment or cure for ataxia.
The aim of the day is to raise awareness about ataxia. Can you participate in an activity that creates awareness? Can you share your experience with others who have not heard about ataxia? Can you raise financial support? Can you help others to have a better understanding of ataxia?
