FSH Muscular Dystrophy (FSHD) is a disease that causes the progressive deterioration of skeletal muscle robbing people of the healthy, independent years of their lives. The main diagnostic features of the condition are loss of muscle in the Face, Scapula, andHumerus (arm).
Approximately two-thirds of cases are inherited, getting the disease from a parent. One third of all cases of FSHD, appears to be the result of a spontaneous genetic mutation.
I support this charity because of their ongoing support with my cousin. Their work has brought me and my family hope for a cure to this devastating disease.
