this compilation is dedicated to raising money and awareness for FRIEDREICH'S ATAXIA (FA) a rare progressive neurological condition that causes damage to the nervous system. Its incidence in the general population is roughly 1 in 50,000. ALL payments for this comp will be donated directly to FARA (Friedreich's Ataxia Research Alliance). When FARA was founded in 1998, there were no treatment approaches or drugs in development for Friedreich’s ataxia. Since then, 15 compounds have reached clinical trials for FA, and there are currently 24 treatment approaches in development. Any fan of hardcore/punk can download this comp and GREATLY help the cause! With your help, we won't go untreated for much longer.
