Leukodystrophy Awareness Month
September 1 - September 30
September is Leukodystrophy Awareness Month! A leukodystrophy is a type of disease that causes degeneration of the myelin, or “white matter” of the brain. Every individual requires healthy production of myelin for speed and accuracy of nerve impulses within the brain. Without a healthy myelin sheath, your nerves can’t send and receive signals properly.
