Mission Statement

The Muscular Dystrophy Association is the world’s leading nonprofit health agency dedicated to saving and improving the lives of anyone with muscle disease, including muscular dystrophy, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and other neuromuscular diseases. It does so by funding worldwide research to find treatments and cures; by providing comprehensive health care services and support to MDA families nationwide; and by rallying communities to fight back through advocacy, fundraising and local engagement.

Description

Finding research breakthroughs across diseases MDA takes a big-picture perspective across neuromuscular diseases to uncover breakthroughs that will accelerate treatments and cures. The power in this research approach is that knowledge and information from one disease can often yield progress in others to speed urgently needed answers for families.

Caring for kids and adults from day one MDA provides early diagnosis, highly specialized care and access to promising clinical trials at MDA Care Centers in top hospitals and health care facilities across the United States and Puerto Rico.

Empowering families with services and support From support groups and educational seminars to assistance with durable medical equipment and giving kids with muscular dystrophy the best week of the year at MDA Summer Camp, MDA empowers families in hometowns across America with help and support they need today.
