Be part of the fight against Ataxia

Researchers need help from people with Ataxia to look for a cure and develop new treatments. Here are links to things you can do to be part of the fight against Ataxia.

Thanks. I contribute to NAF every year. Last month, a company had matching contribution up to $50,000.
I also participated in the research involving BHV-4157. Now looking forward to stemchymal.

Dear can I make donations to this forum. What is the procedure. I am residing in India.

:slightly_smiling_face: Click on the above link. Ignore ‘Donate’ unless you wish to donate in U.S. dollars. Click on ‘Contact’. This gives the business address for the National Ataxia Foundation, telephone numbers, email address and also an email form you can fill in immediately if required. :slightly_smiling_face: xB

Victory, you can donate directly to Ben’s Friends (and it will be greatly appreciated as this site is non-profit). You can go to to see a list of all the rare dieases that have communities like this that people like myself help support.

Across the top is a list of options, one of which is Get Involved which allows donations as well as volunteer options.

:slightly_smiling_face:Apologies Victory, I misread and hope the post from Mod Support was helpful to you :slightly_smiling_face: xB

I did not get any mail from Mod Support. Please guide me how I can donate in this forum.

Hey Victory,
The ‘post’ Beryl mentioned was not an email but a message from Azurelle, a member of our Moderator Support Team, just above Beryl_Park’s post.
Azurelle’s post has a blue highlighted hyperlink, if you click on the blue hyperlink it will take you to the page.
On the page there is a video of Ben Munoz, our founder, and just below the video window there is a green button “Donate Today” or click here
If you click on this you will be taken to our secure donation page.

I hope this assists and thank you for your consideration in donating.

When I tried to make donation, they asked details of my credit card. Can I make online payment through my Indian Credit Card. I use this CC to pay in Indian Rupees.

Hey Victory,
Just to let you know I have sent a message to our admin team with a link to this page, as personally I am unsure of the processes in converting rupees to US$ via our donations page. If you are still having issues then please do let us know and I will be sure to follow this up.

If you check with your credit card company they may do an automatic conversion for you.


Thank you for this information. I just made a donation. I am so grateful to this site and to its founder for having the strength and where-with-all to create a venue of this nature that is so needed and important to/for our communities.
