Meet the Yankees & Mets For CMTA
Meet former Yankees & Mets players: Graig Nettles, Mickey Rivers, Darryl Strawberry, Bud Harrelson, John Franco and Roy White.
Join us for a night of dinner, and laughs as we raise awareness and funds for CMT.
Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease, or CMT, is a little known affliction that affects over 2.8 million people worldwide. CMT refers to a group of genetic disorders that affect the peripheral nervous system. There are more than 70 variations of presentation in those with the diagnosis. Characteristic symptoms include foot drop, hammer toe, and wasting away of the muscle tissue in lower legs, hands and forearms.
There is currently no known treatment for CMT, though some patients will benefit from orthopedic equipment and surgery. And while progression is generally slow, the body will continue to deteriorate over time. The CMTA’s sole purpose is to support those living with this disease by funding research for new drugs and treatment, improving the quality of life for patients, and to one day find a cure.
