Join the Spring CMT Research Challenge

Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease was discovered more than 130 years ago, yet the world still has no treatments or cures. Patients like Chelsea Layton, who has endured 10 surgeries in 10 years due to her CMT, refuse to wait another day for answers. That’s why she and her fellow CMT Research Foundation volunteer ambassadors are challenging the CMT community to a spring fundraising challenge to raise vital funds that will support the most promising and innovative CMT research exclusively focused on drug development. For every donation made or raised between April 19-30, 2021, CMT Research Foundation board member Susan Canavari will match it, dollar for dollar, up to $10,000. That means you can double your impact toward delivering CMT treatments and cures.
