Charcot-Marie-Tooth UK is the only UK charity exclusively supporting people affected by Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease, also known as Hereditary Motor and Sensory Neuropathy.
This rare condition does not affect the teeth, but is named for the three doctors who discovered it! It is a neurological condition affecting the nerves to the arms and legs - damage to these nerves causes muscle wasting, and a variety of subsequent problems with mobility and dexterity. Rarely, people can be severely affected and lose the ability to walk completely.
We provide information, advice and support to help people cope with this condition. We do this by way of a website, Facebook page (fb.com/cmtuk), through a magazine, leaflets and other publications and a popular Annual Conference.
We're a very small charity, and every penny we use to fulfil our objectives is raised by our wonderful members and supporters.
