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. Learn how you can fund cures, find care or champion the cause at mda.org.

Description

At MDA, we are working to change that and free the incredible families we serve from the devastating effects of these diseases so they can live longer and grow stronger. We do this in three ways:

  • We fund research across diseases to accelerate treatments and cures.
  • We care for kids and adults from day one so they get the very best treatment.
  • We empower families with services and support in hometowns across America to help them thrive and stay independent (e.g., summer camps for kids, support groups, equipment assistance).
