HSP, that is the hereditary spastic Spinalparalyse. A rare and incurable genetic disease often begins in childhood and steadily worsened. Defects in the nerve cells complicate walking and make often impossible.

Since 1998 we promote HSP research and support people who are affected by HSP. On our website you find information of the disease, contacts, therapies, the level of research and how you can help us with your donation working for those affected.

At our annual symposium scientists from all over the world meet to exchange their current research results.

By awarding the highly paid Advanced Scholarship the Tom Wahlig Foundation decorates promising research projects. In Addition, two or three projects per year will be supported by our foundation. The funding guidelines were revised in 2017.
