The Fight ALD is dedicated to fighting illness through education. Specifically, its members work to increase awareness of adrenoleukodystrophy (ALD) and adrenomyeloneuropathy (AMM) among medical professionals and the public. Symptoms of these disorders often are misdiagnosed or go undetected, limiting treatment options and leading to life-threatening situations. Adrenoleukodystrophy is an inherited metabolic disorder that causes damage to the myelin sheath that that surrounds nerve cells in the brain. AMM is the name given to the adult-onset form of ALD, and usually involves the myelin sheath of the spinal cord rather than the brain.
