About Western Pennsylvania Drum & Roll to Cure FSHD

The Western PA Chapter's Drum & Roll to Cure FSHD

... is a life-changing event that unites families, friends, neighbors, and local businesses to forge powerful connections and strengthen our families and our community. 

In this unique and amazing event, FSHD warriors will come together to raise funds toward development of treatments for FSH Muscular Dystrophy! 

Yamoussa Camara is the Director of African Music & Dance Ensemble at the University of Pittsburgh. He has extensive experience both teaching and performing, and on Oct. 25th, he will lead our group of fundraisers and advocates in a celebration of the work we're doing to get closer to treatments and a cure! Dance routines can be adapted to power wheelchairs and other mobility devices. You won't want to miss this event - register today to get involved.

We are working together to make a difference for those living with FSH Muscular Dystrophy!
