For more than 60 years, MDA has provided help and hope for families living with neuromuscular disease ...
"When our son was first diagnosed, we didn't know anything about muscular dystrophy other than we had watched the Telethon since we were little kids. Within 24 hours we had contacted the Muscular Dystrophy Association, and that was a fantastic move to make. We learned throughout that there was hope." — Doriann, mother of a child affected by Duchenne muscular dystrophy
"We probably would not have survived the last four years without the help of the Muscular Dystrophy Association. When we were introduced to them, our lives changed. We were able to network as parents and meet other parents going through similar experiences. The staff at our local MDA office have been wonderful. They've accepted us as part of their family." — Robin, parent of a child affected by limb-girdle muscular dystrophy
