About Core Physio Marion

Nick is living with Friedreich’s Ataxia (FA) a genetic, degenerative neuro-muscular disorder. FA is characterised by progressive loss of co-ordination, fatigue, sensory loss and slurred speech. Nick was diagnosed in his early 20’s after noticing loss in co-ordination especially in his legs. Nick is very active in the FA community and has an inspirational goal of completing the Heysen trail, an amazing 1200km, in order to raise money for ongoing research. Since meeting Nick in early January, Megan (his physio) has seen great improvements in his strength and co-ordination. Nick continues to amaze her by his progress, dedication, enthusiasm and resilience and Megan is delighted to be following him on his journey. As a means of supporting Nick and the FA research association, for the month of August, Core Physio Marion will have floating donation boxes and cards for Friederich’s Ataxia. At the end of the month we will match the donations received and donate to FA. Please help Nick and Megan raise money for FA, follow his journey in clinic or via the link below where you can donate online and help us reach our target.

FARA

Imagine being a kid or a teenager and being told you have a degenerative muscle disease which will lead to a loss of muscle co-ordination, fatigue, vision impairment, hearing loss, slurred speech and then a serious heart condition - this is Friedreich Ataxia. 1 in every 30,000 affected. 1 in 90 are carriers. 

The Friedreich Ataxia Research Association (fara) is a not for profit organisation that supports research into treatments and a cure for Friedreich Ataxia. fara does not receive State or Commonwealth Government support and relies largely on the family and friends of Friedreich Ataxia patients and generous businesses within Australia and New Zealand to fund its research programs.  

Money raised will help establish our first clinical gene therapy trials in Australia, which will help find new treatments and a cure for Friedreich Ataxia.
