The CMTA is a 501(C)(3)nonprofit organization founded in 1983 whose goals are patient support, public education, promotion of research and ultimately the treatment and cure of CMT. A voluntary Board of Directors governs the CMTA. The Medical Advisory Board of the CMTA consists of over 50 clinical and research medical professionals. This international group of men and women are noted CMT experts in neurology, genetics, orthopedic surgery, physiatry, physical therapy and podiatry.
The CMTA currently has more than 15,000 patients and families, supportive friends, and medical professionals in its database.
Our mission is to generate the resources to find a cure, to create awareness, and to improve the quality of life for those affected by Charcot-Marie-Tooth. Our vision is a world without CMT!
You can help us achieve our vision by purchasing STAR stamps from Zazzle. Every time you do so, 10% or more of the proceeds goes to the CMTA to fund research. The more stamps you buy within a month the higher the percentage we receive.
