Friedreich Ataxia Research Association

fara Australia (Friedreich Ataxia Research Association) is a not for profit organisation that supports research into treatments and a cure for Friedreich Ataxia (FA). FA is a degenerative muscle disease which will lead to a loss of muscle co-ordination, fatigue, vision impairment, hearing loss, slurred speech and then a serious heart condition.
1 in 30,000 people are affected and 1 in 90 are carriers. Although there has been significant progress towards treatments, today there is no cure.
Every donation, small or large, is a step towards establishing our first clinical gene therapy trials in Australia.
