OUR MISSION

SUPPORT OUR MISSION BY CREATING YOUR OWN FUNDRAISER.

The Transverse Myelitis Association (TMA) is a not-for-profit dedicated to the support of children, adolescents, and adults with a spectrum of rare neuro-immune disorders including: Acute Disseminated Encephalomyelitis (ADEM), Neuromyelitis Optica (NMO), Optic Neuritis (ON) and Transverse Myelitis (TM). Very little is understood about the disease mechanisms for these disorders. It is believed that a person who develops one of these rare neuro-immune disorders likely has a genetic predisposition to auto-immunity, and that there are environmental factors that interact with these genetics to trigger the disease. No one yet understands why some people have a good recovery from an attack, while others have no recovery at all.

 

The goals of the TMA are to support and advocate for individuals and their families through education programs and outreach opportunities including annual family camps for children; to build a comprehensive network of medical professionals dedicated to the care of patients through Fellowships, and to support research to further the understanding of the causes of TM, ADEM, ON and NMO, and develop new acute and regenerative therapies.
