At the Muscular Dystrophy Association, we’re fighting to free individual’s ― and the families who love them ― from the harm of muscular dystrophy, ALS and related diseases that take away everyday freedoms like walking, hugging, running, talking and breathing. The Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) was founded in 1950 for the purpose of eradicating neuromuscular diseases. The search for treatments and cures for neuromuscular diseases has always been MDA’s primary goal. To that end, the Association sponsors worldwide research program, making it the nation’s leading voluntary organization supporting basic and applies scientific investigation into the neuromuscular diseases in its program. MDA helped train many of the leading researchers in the field today. Life expectancy for those affected by many childhood neuromuscular diseases has increased because of better diagnostic techniques and medical management, much of which was developed, in connection, with MDA research and clinical care.
