Advocacy

louiseoconnor-31“I was asked so often ‘What is FTD?’ that I wanted the whole world to know. I encourage volunteers to help raise the profile of this disorder from coast to coast in Canada and the US ,” Louise O’Connor, Ottawa Canada.

Accomplishing AFTD’s Mission requires advocacy – speaking out about patients’ and families’ needs, hopes and successes.

Add your voice to our campaign to educate others about FTD, improve policies and resources for patients and families, and intensify research and development for treatments and a cure.
