Any advice on possible SCA or Friedreichs patient?

I am seeking anyone who can give me advice on how best to fight and postpone this malicious inherited deficit?

Or possibly any doctors any where east of the missippi river in the US that specialize in such diseases?

I don't know for once in my life i'm completely at a loss for thought or words, its hard to stomache these possibilities after losing my father to primary amyloidosis.

Maybe just some positive words? hahaha
