Pacific Northwest Friends of FSH Research Overview
Facioscapulohumeral Dystrophy, or FSH or FSHD, is a degenerative muscular disease for which there is no treatment or cure. Through increased public awareness and research funding, we believe a cure can be found. The specific objectives and purposes of the corporation shall be: 1. To encourage, promote and fund increased scientific and clinical research for Facioscapulohumeral Dystrophy, with the goal of identifying treatment and a cure for the disease. 2. To conduct fundraising efforts and solicit grants and contributions from individuals, private foundations and others, in order to sponsor research to advance the study and understanding of FSH. 3. To disseminate information about FSH and encourage additional public support for FSH research by raising public awareness of the need for more research funding.
After holding the first “FiSHing for a Cure” gala in 2005, the Friends of FSH Research has provided funding for numerous FSH pilot studies. Many of the pilot projects have gone forward to qualify for greater funding by the MDA or the National Institutes of Health. FSH research is moving forward!
