FARAFARA Cure FA

Corey Adams

Hey, my name is Corey Adams. I am 24 years old, from West Virginia. I am currently attending school for Nutrition Science. I want to someday work with athletes as a Nutritionist/Dietitian.  I enjoy a lot of things; I’m a very active person. I love to travel, although I’ve never been out of the United States. Working out is one of my main hobbies, I work on all areas. I do it as much as I can. I’m a huge sports fanatic, but anyone who knows me knows baseball is hands down my favorite. Although I am into nutrition I’m a huge foodie; I love to try new things.  I'm very laid back person.
 
I do still walk, I either use a rollator or I do a little furniture walking, and if I’m going somewhere that requires a lot of walking, I take my chair. I was diagnosed at 15, I was in denial about FA at first.  I grew into really accepting it and embracing my situation. What really made me want to become an ambassador is meeting a few others with FA that were ambassadors and they are so sweet, very hungry and willing to do whatever it takes! I can honestly say I’ve met many lifelong friends.

The FARA Ambassador Program

The FARA Ambassador Program

The FARA Ambassadors are a united team of patient volunteers living with FA who are committed to supporting FARA in the search for a treatment and cure.
 
Together we seek to know more about FA, and FARA so we can be prepared to represent the community when the opportunity arises; speaking at events, to volunteers, potential donors, scientific groups, pharma partners, media interviews and other awareness and fundraising opportunities. We believe support is key to continued success toward our ultimate goal of treatment and a cure. Participants in the FARA Ambassador Program are passionate about building and upholding relationships within the FA community.
 
The FARA Ambassadors are positive, supportive, peer representatives for the FA community, actively raising awareness and funds for FARA. To learn more about the FARA Ambassador Program or to have a FARA Ambassador speak at your event, please contact: info@cureFA.org.
