About Muscular Dystrophy Association

Location:

2189 Northlake Parkway, Suite 100, Tucker, GA 30084, US

Mission Statement

The Muscular Dystrophy Association's mission is to foster and promote the alleviation of the conditions of persons with muscular dystrophy and related neuromuscular disorders through support of basic and applied research seeking the causes of and effective treatments for these diseases. MDA believes the medical management and day-to-day well-being of those it serves are also vitally important and, accordingly, provides a broad range of patient and community services in tandem with its support of potentially lifesaving research.

The Association was started in 1950 by a group of concerned parents whose children were affected by neuromuscular diseases. Over fifty years later, MDA is the leader in muscle disorder research and provides a broad range of services to our families at no cost to them. Services include assistance in the purchase and maintenance of leg braces, wheelchairs and communication devices and MDA Clinic visits. Other services include support groups, physical therapy; flu shots for patients, a weeklong Summer Camp, vital research and much more.

MDA serves over 2200 children and adults in an 86 county area. MDA requests no fees from those it serves and receives no United Way funding. The Association is funded almost entirely by private, individual contributors.

MDA is the first non-profit organization honored with the American Medical Association Lifetime Achievement Award for "significant and lasting contributions to the health and welfare of humanity."

Description

The Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) is a voluntary health agency working to find treatments and cures for forty-three (43) neuromuscular diseases through programs of worldwide research, comprehensive medical and community services and far-reaching professional and public health education.

ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, known as Lou Gehrig's disease) and is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that attacks, and eventually kills the nerve cells and pathways in the brain and spinal cord resulting in muscle weakness. It makes everyday simple tasks difficult and then impossible as the body's muscle waste away. ALS occurs throughout the world with no racial, ethnic or socioeconomic boundaries.

Currently, there is no known cause or cure for ALS.
