Flexin & Finessin

Take a flexin' selfie for FA Awareness!

This is my good friend Steph out in California, flexin' for friedreich's ataxia (FA). awareness! FA is a physically devastating disease that attacks the muscle coordination of the entire body, including the heart and other important stuff! It damages the cells in the body, causing diabetes and other complications, all while progressing, making life constantly more and more difficult. I was diagnosed at 9 and ever since, it's been a little harder as I go. Don't get me wrong, it has brought a lot of really great things to me and lead me to some of the best friends! Next Saturday I want May 19th is FA Awareness Day and we are asking you to lend us some muscle by just taking a pic your best 💪 Don't forget to tag FARA and use the hashtag #LendUsSomeMuscle2018 and #CureFA. A simple picture can spark a flame 🔥 and spread awareness! You know you want a reason to flex in your selfie 😉, so help us fight to reach a treatment by flexin&finessin with us!
