Now in his mid-30s, Vance Taylor has a simple request. He wants to celebrate a 50th birthday, for the sake of his wife and two daughters. That’s what he told researchers at the Muscular Dystrophy Association’s recent scientific conference, even as his own progressive muscle disease makes things more difficult with every passing year. Vance and so many others are counting on you to help them live longer and stronger – and that takes funding. Please help with your most generous gift today.
Your gift will fund research to further our understanding of what causes neuromuscular diseases and how to better treat them. You’ll also help provide services such as hospital affiliated clinics and equipment loans and referrals. And life-changing experiences like a week at camp for kids with muscle disease.
The Muscular Dystrophy Association is the nonprofit health agency dedicated to finding treatments and cures for muscular dystrophy, ALS and related diseases by funding worldwide research. MDA also provides comprehensive health care and support services, advocacy and education.
