Galafold® (migalastat) & Women With Fabry
> Treatment

Rebecca, an actual Galafold patient.

From diagnosis through treatment of Fabry disease, you are your own best advocate.

From your specific genetic variant (mutation) to how Fabry disease affects your body, your Fabry is unique. So is when and how it’s treated. The decisions around treating your Fabry are between you and your healthcare providers. You may face resistance to treat your Fabry or hesitation to treat until your symptoms are more severe (a “wait and see” approach). Remember that you are a part of these decisions. Begin by cultivating a healthcare team and community that believes, and believes in, you.

IN HER WORDS: YOU HAVE A SAY

Rebecca explains why she advocated for her treatment to start sooner and why she feels that “for women especially, if you feel that you need that treatment… you need to push for it.”
