Join us this summer for Stronger Together: 2019 Scientific and Family Conference, held at the Renaissance Downtown Chicago Hotel this July.

Check out our video from the last event: https://youtu.be/m6PtICzoB5Q

This event will bring together three congenital muscle disease nonprofit groups: Cure CMD (www.curecmd.org), A Foundation Building Strength (www.buildingstrength.org), and Team Titin (www.titinopathy.org), focused on three different but similar genetic neuromuscular conditions: Congenital Muscular Dystrophy, Nemaline Myopathy, and Titinopathy, respectively. While parents and caregivers learning the latest in care practices and research, young attendees will be able to bond with each other, watch a live small animal show, and see a superhero balloon magic show, sing karaoke, and more.

The conditions studied at this conference vary in severity from person to person. Many children will be in wheelchairs while others will still have the ability to walk. Regardless, we'll all be present to talk about improving the quality of life for those with rare neuromuscular diseases, how to self-advocate, and what's happening in research toward treatments and a cure.
