BabelFAmily is non-profit organization headquartered in Spain (CIF: G-85711513). We are a worldwide group of volunteers that unite our skills to support the greater FA community of patients, doctors, researchers, scientists and associations in their mission to find treatments and a cure for Friedreich’s ataxia.
Friedreich’s ataxia is a hereditary, progressive, neurological disorder characterized by serious disruptions in balance, movement and muscle coordination. FA is typically diagnosed in childhood between the ages of 5 and 15. Symptoms include: fatigue, loss of reflexes, aggressive scoliosis, possible heart condition or diabetes, loss of balance and coordination, slurred speech and vision impairment.
