Mission Statement

The Martini Coalition For Research and Development, Inc. was formed on March 30, 2005. The Non-Profit Corporation was created in order to help further research of incurable diseases, specifically, Neuromuscular Diseases. The Corporation currently works diligently to raise funds to give to other organizations, such as Muscular Dystrophy Association of America and the Parent Project, who sponsor scientist and doctors who are studying to find more and better treatments for all types of Neuromuscular Diseases. A future goal for the Corporation would be to fund qualified scientific groups for specific studies being performed to find a cure for such diseases.

Description

The Martini Coalition for Research and Development, Inc. Board of Trustees consists of five descendents of Bernard and Janet Martini, including their daughters, Deborah A. (Martini) Hayes, Jennifer L. (Martini) Barnhart, and Marcia Martini; and their grandchildren, Jessica M. Maybury and Steven L. Greiwe, Jr. Over 20 years ago, in 1983, the Martini family was devastated when a member of our family, Daniel Joseph Martini lost his battle with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. Since that time, Deborah, Jennifer and Marcia have all had sons diagnosed with this Neuromuscular Disease, including our Board Member, Steven Greiwe. Our drive to defeat these debilitating diseases has become stronger than ever. Our goal is to help find a cure for these diseases before our family and others like ours experience any more loss of life.

Please join us and help us help children.
