BENEFITING: Spastic Paraplegia Foundation, Inc.
I have this rare disease. Mine was inherited from both of my parents. There are many variations but typically we are neurologically challenged in several ways. Muscles from virtually any part of the body is wacky. Sometimes balance can become an issue and as I recently learned your eyes can be afffected. Having a chronic illness does usually include a psychological component which differs in degree for each person with Hereditary Spastic Paraplegia. Treatment is specific to each individual. While I benefit from intense physical therapy and masssage, medications play a big role in my life. For more information please visit sp-foundation.org
