My Story…

I'm walking for Dystonia throughout the month of June because I was diagnosed with Cervical Dystonia in 2014 and it drastically changed my life. I deal with severe chronic pain and abnormal movements of my neck every day. There are limited treatment options for the disorder and it is extremely debilitating. 

I am hopeful that raising awareness and funds for Dystonia will lead to more research and in turn more treatment options.

My personal goal is to walk 150-200km throughout the month of June.

Description

Dystonia is a neurological movement disorder that causes muscles in the body to contract or spasm involuntarily. Primary dystonia affects approximately 50,000 Canadians. Watch this short video to learn more. 

The mission of the Dystonia Medical Research Foundation (DMRF) Canada is to advance research for more treatments and ultimately a cure; to promote awareness and education and to support the needs and well being of affected individuals and families. For more information, click here
