ActiveForever and CMTA

Did you know that Charcot-Marie-Tooth Disease (CMT) currently affects roughly 115,000 Americans of all ages?

The hereditary, neurological disorder first diagnosed in 1886, is not life-threatening and almost never affects the brain. It does however, cause damage to the peripheral nerves. These nerves connect the brain and spinal cord to the muscles and sensory organs in our bodies. This neuropathy (nerve damage) causes muscles to become weak and deteriorate as well as a loss of sensation in the extremities.

The genetic causes of CMT were unknown as recently as 1991. As of now, scientists and physicians have helped to concretely identify 10 different genes linked to CMT. In all, there are a total of 30 genes in which abnormalities are thought to lead to CMT.

As part of their growing arsenal of partnerships, ActiveForever has joined forces with the Charcot-Marie-Tooth Association (CMTA). Together we advocate for the support, education and pursuit of a cure for those afflicted with CMT.

We invite you to learn more about this cause and find out ways in which you can become involved!
