MDA For Strength Independence & Life

Help Through Services and Support

"Within 24 hours of our son being diagnosed, we had contacted the Muscular Dystrophy Association, and that was a fantastic move to make. We learned throughout that there was hope." — Parent of a child affected by Duchenne muscular dystrophy

Providing Help and Hope

If you or someone you love is affected by muscular dystrophy, ALS or related muscle-debilitating diseases, please know you’re not alone. MDA stands alongside our families in our communities to assist and empower the kids and adults we serve. We care for kids and adults from day one so they get the very best treatment. And, we empower families with services and support in hometowns across America to help them thrive and stay independent, including summer camps for kids, support groups, equipment assistance and more.
