MDA is the real deal. It is supporting patients, supporting physicians, supporting researchers and supporting legislation on Capitol Hill so research can move forward for families.
The freedom to walk, to talk, to run and play. To laugh, to hug. To eat. To breathe. Every day, muscle-debilitating diseases take these abilities away from kids and adults we love. And every day, MDA families are doing remarkable things to live beyond their physical limits. MDA's Live Unlimited movement is inspired by the courage and strength of our families to celebrate what we can do and be relentless in our pursuit of making more can-do moments possible. Join us.
