Frequently Asked Questions
Kennedy’s Disease (spinal and bulbar muscular atrophy) is an adult-onset “X” linked inherited disease with symptoms usually beginning to appear between the ages of 30 and 50.
The Kennedy’s Disease Association has worked to educate others about this lesser-known disease and to support clinical research efforts.
It takes an enormous amount of money to fund research…more than any of us can afford alone, but together, we are capable of great accomplishments.
It is passed on from generation to generation in families worldwide. Males generally inherit the disease symptoms and females are the carriers.
