The Foundation Staff

Allison Moore
Founder, Director

Allison Moore, founded HNF in 2001 in an effort to improve the quality of life for people with Charcot-Marie-Tooth. She divides her time between her homes in Manhattan and Amagansett, NY, with her husband, Robert, and her two young sons. Allison was diagnosed with CMT after a hospital mishap in which she was treated with medications that exacerbated her CMT symptoms and made her legs weak and imbalanced. Her goal was to create one of the best storehouses of information about CMT in the country and also to raise awareness of CMT to both the general public and to medical professionals. Featured in New York Magazine, People, Scientific American, and local radio/TV, Allison is a national champion for increasing awarness of CMT and improving the quality of life for those who live with the disease.
