THE STORY:

I, like an estimated 2.6 million people, have Charcot-Marie-Tooth (also known also CMT).

  • CMT is the most commonly inherited peripheral neuropathy and is found worldwide among all races and ethnic groups.
  • CMT is a disorder in which the nerves that control the muscles degenerate and muscles weaken because the affected nerves no longer stimulate them.

CMT has affected not only myself, but my grandmother, aunt, cousin and mother. My grandmother required a wheelchair, my aunt requires leg braces and my cousin required leg braces as a child.. 

I just want to help spread the word of CMT, because most people don't even know they have it, and help find a cure.

The data referenced above and more can be found on the CMTA website at www.cmtausa.org

I finally got a diagnosis in 2013 after wondering what was wrong with me for over a decade. Turns out it runs in my family. Here's to being CMT strong. 3 years ago
