04 May 2018 – Radio Fox supports Dystonia Awareness week 2018 from 5th to the 13th May.
Dystonia, estimated to affect at least 70,000 people in the UK across all generations from childhood upwards, is a very painful, debilitating and disabling disorder, however it lacks awareness among the general public and medical professionals. Dystonia Awareness Week is all about raising awareness of dystonia and there are many ways to get involved.
The Dystonia Society was established in 1983 by a small group of people affected by dystonia, with the support of the late Professor David Marsden. The Society was established to promote the welfare of people who are affected by any form of the neurological movement disorder known as dystonia. The Society aims to do this by promoting awareness of the disorder, by supporting research and by undertaking welfare initiatives. It does this on a national level and through its network of local support groups.
