In honor of International Ataxia Awareness Day, a Central New York support group gathered at the North Syracuse Community Center to spread the word of this disease.
“It can affect anybody any time any stage in their life”
It’s called Ataxia, a disease that mainly affects the nervous system and one that many people have never heard of. That’s why school teacher Ed Lucke and other Central New Yorkers make a point to come together to celebrate International Ataxia Awareness Day each September
The usual fall expos at the New York State Fairgrounds took place this weekend alongside a crowd of costumed heroes and characters from Japanese television shows.
Fandom members from far and wide converged at the fairgrounds Art & Home Center for the fifth annual Syracuse Anime Convention, which has been extended to a two-day event for the first time in its history.
