The Diann Shaddox Foundation Mission
The Diann Shaddox Foundation for Essential Tremor is dedicated to finding a cure for ET, educate, and increase awareness about people afflicted with Essential Tremors. DSF is a Non-Profit public organization 501 c(3) and is adamant to advance treatments that can slow, stop, or reverse the progression of Essential Tremors.
Essential Tremors (ET) is a progressive neurological condition that causes a rhythmic trembling of the hands, head, voice, legs, or body. Over 42 million people worldwide including children have ET, the largest movement disorder in the world.
DSF works with people worldwide to show that ET is an international progressive disorder. We are unwavering to assist families with our Anti-Bullying Program, Suicide Prevention Program, Family Assistance Program, and Medical Research Program to find a cause and cure. ET can begin at any age, from birth to 100. ET doesn't discriminate with age, race, sex, or national origin.
We want to show that Essential Tremors isn’t just for the elderly, but children of all ages have ET. We can bring people out of hiding and educate teachers so children and teens aren’t bullied about their tremors. The stories are endless from people struggling with depression and living with ET.
