About Pompe

Pompe Disease is a neuromuscular disorder that causes muscle weakness in persons of any age. It affects everyone differently but, in general, causes progressive muscle weakness, especially of the proximal muscles. This is why the patient's breathing is often affected. Patients that are affected as infants can also have organ involvement. Early diagnosis is critical.


About the Canadian Association of Pompe

The Canadian Association of Pompe was established to help persons in Canada, and elsewhere, become familiar with Pompe disease, and to support persons with Pompe disease.
