The National Ataxia Foundation (NAF) is a non-profit organization established in 1957. The Foundation is dedicated to improving the lives of persons affected by ataxia through support, education and research. The Foundation supports research in dominant, recessive and sporadic ataxia. In addition, the Foundation has developed an extensive library of NAF brochures, fact sheets, books, and other educational material relating to ataxia. Also available to its members is a quarterly newsletter called "Generations," which provides the latest information on ataxia research, articles on living with ataxia, and personal accounts of ataxia families throughout the United States.
