Our Son Jake now 21 years old was diagnosed with Friedreich Ataxia in Jan 2010 at the age of 13 years he went into his 1st Wheelchair within 6 months of diagnosis. FA which is a Rare Neuro-Degenerative condition currently has No Cure, it has many symptoms - Loss of Co-ordination & Mobility (most people with Ataxia look like they are drunk while trying to keep mobile & walking) Severe heart conditions, Scoliosis of the spine, clubbed feet & hands, Extreme Fatigue, Slurred speech, impaired vision & hearing, sensitivity to heat & cold temperatures, Diabetes & involuntary muscle movements. FA is one of those Rare Diseases & is not one of those conditions We all know about. It was the Most Heartbreaking moment in my/our Lives & as Jake's Mum, I was determined to Make a Difference to be able to Help those that are the Researchers who dedicate their Lives & time to Find that Cure. WAFA Support Crew which has been actively fundraising for FARA since 2011 has also become Team #FUFA because We Will Not Be Beaten. Jake is An Inspiration to Many that know & Love him & it is in his Honour & all those that suffer with FA that We continue to Fight Friedreich Ataxia. You can help too, by donating to my page.
