WHAT IS FTD?
It’s the most common dementia for people under 60. But FTD, or Frontotemporal degeneration, is still far too little known today, even for doctors and health professionals.
AFTD works every day to raise awareness, advocate for change, improve quality of life for people affected by FTD, and drive research to a cure. If you’re looking to learn more, find support, or make a difference for families affected, you’ve come to the right place.
