Our Story

Hope For Ataxia (HFA) was launched in November of 2019. We’ve come a long way since then.

We are a federally incorporated non-profit in Canada (1214098-5).


Our goal is to raise Ataxia awareness globally.


Our goals include the formal creation of HFA as a Canadian non-profit, expanding to other social media platforms such as Instagram/YouTube, and creating a video podcast.

By the end of 2020, we will have the website available in 5 different languages.

By the 5 year mark, we will have 4-5 big fundraisers and awareness campaigns under our belts. 


Spread awareness through the dissemination of factual information, personal stories, and lived experiences.

  • Content that we are focused on includes:
    • Global Ataxia Support Groups with speakers
    • Newsletters
    • Curating content from other sources
    • Faces of Ataxia blog posts
    • Fundraising campaigns with other charities
