“Thanks for giving me the opportunity to give back a bit. AFTD has been a great oasis for me in the wake of this disease. Thank you for being a part of our world.” – Marianne Warley, AFTD volunteer
Giving a Hand to Our Helping Hands!
It can feel overwhelming to navigate a disease that is met with so much unfamiliarity. Many people touched by FTD find themselves in a world where most, including medical experts, have no idea what they’re up against. It can be isolating. Thankfully, volunteer efforts by those such as Kacy Kunesh are helping to change that. To read the full story click here.
Join a network of volunteers throughout the US that is dedicated to making a difference in the world of the frontotemporal disorders. AFTD needs the time and talents of volunteers from across the country who appreciate the challenges people with FTD, their families and healthcare professionals face, and want to bring knowledge and understanding of FTD to the forefront. As a volunteer, you will engage with a community that shares your interest and passion.
AFTD offers an array of volunteer opportunities to support the organization through awareness, fundraising, support, advocacy, research and education. Regional coordinators work hard to match volunteers with their specific interests to ensure a fulfilling and fun experience that is also making a valuable contribution to the FTD/AFTD community.
