Since Brain and Life magazine [formerly Neurology Now] has failed to write an article on Ataxia even though we have written to them, I took it upon myself to send an email direct to their letters to the editor page. I hope that wakes them up.
A few of us have written to you via the “contact us” page on your site regarding our very rare illness called Ataxia. I’m not talking about the symptom ataxia but the actual movement disorder called Ataxia. Note the small a [ataxia] for the symptom and the capital A [Ataxia] for the illness. However, you have done nothing about our request. Folks are aware of the common MS and Parkinson’s but the only way for those folks to learn of Ataxia is by you doing the research and writing a complete article about it. Please do it.
Also, you used to have Ataxia as part of your resource section, but for some reason Brain and Life now omits it. Please bring it back.
