Familial Dysautonomia Path to the Cure
Familial Dysautonomia (FD) is a rare children’s genetic disease that affects the autonomic and sensory nervous systems which control all involuntary bodily functions. Every physical function that we take for granted is affected by it — respiratory, cardiac, orthopedic, renal, ophthalmic, and others. Symptoms are present at birth and grow worse over time.
We were pleased both to participate personally in the April 15, 2012, 5K Walk for Familial Dysautonomia — Path to the Cure and have the Susan and Jack Holender Children’s Fund participate financially as an event sponsor.
