Teen with Neurovascular Muscular Dystrophy Competes in Ballroom Dancing Competition

Like Ariel, other patients can find hobbies that they're passionate about

Ariel used her newfound passion for ballroom dancing to help her overcome the challenges she faced with her disorder. For kids and adults alike who are suffering from diseases and disorders like neurovascular muscular dystrophy, finding an outlet could play a key role in maintaining happiness. Reach out to community centers and support groups to find out if there are any programs running that are specifically for people with the disease. 

If sports do not sound appealing, look toward other hobbies such as reading, writing, arts, and crafts. Find groups through social media that will encourage sharing passions and to develop more contacts with like-minded people.  Whatever activity it is that motivates the patient, add it to the list.
