    I was recently diagnosed with Charcot-Marie-Tooth and I was wondering how I would be able to gain awareness in Maine about the disorder. I am a mom of 3 boys and it wasnt until I was diagnosed when my youngest was born that I even heard about the condition. I would like to have people here in Maine if there not aware of it to become aware. This condition for me is awful and has changed my way of life and if I can help someone else not have to deal with the stuggles alone like I have had to. I also would like to in time organize a walk to raise money for the disorder if someone can lead me into the direction of where I need to be would be amazing

      Thank you for your comment. We certainly understand your challenges and struggles, and you’re right, awareness is such a big part of what we need to do. One of our premiere awareness efforts is our children’s book series, see We offer free school presentations, and perhaps your sons’ schools would be interested. Contact me,, to talk further about this. Also, our Team CMT,, is a great way to raise awareness of Charcot-Marie-Tooth while raising money for research.

      This is a very difficult disease, but we truly believe that together, we can make a difference. Looking forward to working with you!
