Today is International Ataxia Awareness Day.
Never heard of Ataxia? I had never heard of it either, until I met Auntie Patti.
Ataxia is a slow moving and unstoppable thief.
As a bystander, you feel powerless.
We aren’t totally powerless.

Sadly and tragically, Auntie Patti passed away a week ago today. To promote and assist further research please consider a donation to the National Ataxia Foundation are appreciated – if you would like to make a donation of any size you may do so here
