The Diann Shaddox Foundation for Essential Tremor is dedicated to finding a cure for Essential Tremor. Their goal is to educate and increase awareness about people afflicted with Essential Tremor and to advance treatments that can slow, stop, or reverse the progression of Essential Tremors.
Essential Tremors (ET) is a progressive neurological condition that causes a rhythmic trembling of the hands, head, voice, legs, or body. Over 42 million people worldwide including children have ET, the largest movement disorder in the world. Recent research indicates that 5 out of every 100 children under the age of 20 has Essential Tremor. Diann's Foundation works with people worldwide to show that ET is an international progressive disorder. They are unwavering to assist families with their Programs to find a cause and cure. ET can begin at any age, from birth to 100 and doesn’t discriminate with age, race, sex, or national origin. Lon Anderson
