About This Activity
The mission of FD NOW is to find a cure and new treatment options for Familial Dysautonomia (FD), a life-threatening disorder.
Familial Dysautonomia (FD) is a rare, life-threatening, genetic, neurologic disease present at birth. People with FD have an impaired autonomic nervous system, rendering each breath, swallow and heartbeat undependable and erratic. They are prone to wide swings in blood pressure and to life-threatening autonomic crisis. Those with FD live in unstable, unreliable bodies since FD also impairs a part of the sensory nervous system that controls pain and temperature. Thus, broken bones, burns and frostbite often go undetected.
