About HFA

Hope For Ataxia is fairly new (2019). We are working on some key projects for the Ataxia community and have some big goals.

Thanks for wanting to know more about Hope For Ataxia!

Our Mission

Our main aim is to spread awareness of Ataxia globally. Ataxia is a rare disease that not very many people know about. We are in constant contact with others in the community – some of whom are really suffering.

We hope that through our efforts, the suffering of those with Ataxia can be alleviated by making others aware of what Ataxians have to endure.
