I wish they start group talks in Louisiana 


Hi Meca😊

You could contact your nearest group, and ask if they had other people near you looking for information😊  You never know what can turn up.  A friendly phone call can make all the difference 😊

Check Support Groups on 😊xB


Hello Derek,  Yes, so nice to hear that someone else (albeit on the other side of the globe) has a mix of hereditary cerebellar ataxia and HSP!  Do the other folks in your support group have a mix, too? 


Hi clmr,

many of our group members have unique issues so as far as I'm aware I am the only one to have this combination.

I hadn't heard of Ataxa until it effected me and had never heard of HSP until now

The silver cloud is I quess I could compete in the Paralympics (assuming I was any good at any sport)
