The Muscular Dystrophy Association
Through the Brothers Give Back program, we are proud to be able to donate $1000.00 to The Muscular Dystrophy Association of the Rocky Mountains. MDA takes a big-picture perspective across the full spectrum of neuromuscular diseases to uncover breakthroughs that accelerate treatments and cures. The power in a research approach is that they can often apply learnings from one disease to achieve progress in others to bring urgently needed answers to the families.
Here are some of our current highlights:
- Funding for 150 research projects around the world
- Awarded nearly 70 MDA research grants in 2016 with a total funding commitment of more than $16 million
- Contributed to dozens of clinical trials now underway
- In 2016, the FDA approved the first disease-modifying drugs to treat Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) and spinal muscular atrophy (SMA)
From offering support groups and educational seminars to assisting families with durable medical equipment and giving kids with muscular dystrophy the best week of the year at MDA Summer Camp, MDA empowers families in hometowns across America with the help and support they need today.
