The Hereditary Neuropathy Foundation is committed to increasing awareness of Charcot Marie Tooth disease (CMT) and funding research. CMT is an inherited neuromuscular disease that is characterized by muscle weakness and atrophy, primarily in the legs but also in the small muscles of the hands. It can impair a person's ability to walk, impede the normal use of one's hands, and even result in the loss of sensation in both hands and feet. NHF publishes educational content, including video streaming, related to CMT on its website. It is committed to expanding awareness of the genetics, diagnosis, and coping methods, both physician and emotional, associated with CMT. HNF seeks to increase publicity and media attention to inform the public about CMT and the need for early intervention.
