Mission Statement

MDA is leading the fight to free individuals -- and the families who love them -- from the harm of muscular dystrophy, ALS and related muscle-debilitating diseases that take away physical strength, independence and life. We use our collective strength to help kids and adults live longer and grow stronger by finding research breakthroughs across diseases, caring for individuals from day one and empowering families with services and support in hometowns across America.

Description

For Families, By Families

Families are at the heart of MDA's mission. A caring and concerned group of families started MDA in 1950, and we continue to relentlessly puruse our promise to free families from the life-threatening effects of muscular dystrophy and muscle-debilitating diseases today. Read more about MDA's journey and the progress we've helped make possible.

The Muscular Dystrophy Association is a voluntary health agency consisting of a dedicated partnership between scientists and concerned citizens aimed at conquering neuromuscular diseases that affect more than a million Americans. MDA combats neuromuscular diseases through programs of worldwide research, comprehensive medical and community services, and far-reaching professional and public health education.
