"Hopefully one day FSHD will be stopped in its tracks. I know that there is still a long road ahead, with many milestones to pass but the journey isn’t quite so scary knowing that I am not alone and that there are those willing to keep pushing ahead, guiding the way until we find the key to unlock that final door."
