Sixth Annual New York CMTA Reception

The Essex House in New York City
Save the Date! Be a STAR Constellation Supporter.

The Charcot-Marie-Tooth Association reminds supporters that this year’s STAR Cocktail Reception will be held on October 26, 2015 at The Essex House in New York City. Please join us for an evening of dinner, entertainment and auction to benefit the CMTA and its effort to fund research for those suffering with 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.
