Mission Statement

The National Ataxia Foundation's mission is to accelerate the development of therapies and a cure while working to improve the lives of those living with Ataxia.

Description

NAF is a membership-supported, nonprofit organization established in1957 to help persons with ataxia and their families. The Foundation's primary purpose is to support promising ataxia research and to provide vital programs and services for ataxia families.

NAF research programs continue to fund promising ataxia research studies throughout the world. The Foundation supports research in dominant ataxia (including SCAs), recessive ataxia (including Friedreich's), and sporadic ataxia.

We Provide the Latest Ataxia News and Information

The Foundation has developed an extensive library of NAF brochures, fact sheets, books, and videos on ataxia.

Connecting the Ataxia Community

The Foundation offers a Resource List of neurologists in your area and provides Bulletin Boards, Chat Rooms, NAF Pen Pal Programs, and other venues for ataxia families to connect with one another. One additional way the Foundation offers ataxia families to connect is through the annual membership meetings. Held in a different geographical location each year, these three-day conferences give a comprehensive look at ataxia through experts in the field of ataxia research, genetics, physical therapy, living with ataxia, coping, financial planning, caregiving, and alike.
