After speaking with Millie Mae’s father I thought it would be a fantastic to share Millie Mae’s inspirational journey.To help raise awareness of Ataxia.
In February 2010 Millie then aged 8, was diagnosed with Friedreich Ataxia (a rare neuro-muscular condition effecting every nerve and muscle including her heart). Ataxia has no rules with each patient being different to the next. Some can be in a wheelchair from the age of 6 and live to 60 whereas others are not so fortunate.
Millie’s cardiomyopathy (heart muscle thickening) has been classed as severe.
Ataxia means ‘lack of order’. People with ataxia have problems with movement, balance, and speech. Over 10,000 people in the UK have a form of ataxia. 100′s of thousands worldwide. There is currently NO cure.
