About MDA

We're here to transform the lives of people affected by neuromuscular disease.

Our History

For Families, By Families

Families are at the heart of MDA's mission. A caring and concerned group of families started MDA in 1950, and we continue to relentlessly pursue our promise to free families from the life-threatening effects of muscular dystrophy and muscle-debilitating diseases today.
