“Before I read the CMT symptoms card, I had no idea that my breathing difficulties at night could be related to having CMT and that sleep apnoea was common to

people with this condition. I am excited to see the launch of the CMT symptoms card and hope that it will be able to help other people in the UK with CMT, as much as it has helped me.”

Judith Wellby, who has Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease (CMT)
