A typical CMT sufferer has many problems with their feet and walking. This is how we meet so many of these charming people.
Many people suffer every moment of every day with this condition. I know many people with CMT and they are such wonderful strong and independent people. They will not let this disease get the better of them.
If you don’t know much about it then this is a quick paragraph from their website.
CMT or Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease (named after the 3 medical professionals who first identified CMT), is also known as Hereditary Motor and Sensory Neuropathy (HMSN). It is a common but frequently undiagnosed condition. CMT is not a contagious disease but is an inherited neurological disease and in some families has a 50% chance of being passed onto other generations. Research has indicated that as many as 1 in 2,500 people in Australia could have CMT. CMT is not life threatening although people with CMT have it for life. Donations can be made here ….
