A disease most people have never heard of ...

Familial Dysautonomia (FD) is a rare genetic neurological disorder that effects the sensory and autonomic nervous systems, causing life-threatening medical complications from birth. (More about FD.)

Research funded by the Dysautonomia Foundation has led to a number of breakthroughs in treatment and has led to the discovery of the FD gene. To protect future generations, get tested for FD and other genetic diseases.  (View our FD screening awareness video here.)

The Dysautonomia Foundation is a 501c3 nonprofit organization that has established the world's only FD treatment centers. We are the largest source of funding for FD treatment and research in the world. (More about us here.)
