CMT Disease - Awareness Month 2015 - DAY 1

As the title of this blog post suggests, September is CMT Awareness Month.

Did you know that Charcot-Marie-Tooth Disease (CMT) is more common than Motor Neurone Disease (ALS)?

Despite this, most people have heard of Motor Neurone Disease, especially after last year's hugely successful Ice Bucket Challenge which took social media by storm!

Throughout September my blog is going to be focussing on CMT,
particularly the following topics:

What IS CMT?

The importance of Awareness Month

How does CMT affect me?

Tips for living with CMT

Current research into CMT

What YOU can do to help!

Where to find further information and help

Please don't feel overwhelmed by the amount of information you read here. I am hoping to keep my Awareness Month posts relatively brief, with links to further reading if you are interested.

Please please PLEASE do pop back each day and learn a little more about this disease.

Feel free to share and help us spread awareness of this condition.

As CMT United Kingdom say, "Together we are stronger"!

If you are interested in finding out more, the UK's official charity for the disease, CMT United Kingdom, have a wealth of information.

  1. Good for you Sam, so many people have never heard of CMT, I hadn't until I was diagnosed! Awareness is key isn't it? Together we are stronger!! Check out my blog at http://mystripylife.blogspot.co.uk where I write about living with CMT and Ehlers Danlos Syndrome and how it gives our family stripes. I look forward to reading the rest of your posts this month. Sarah x
