The Muscular Dystrophy Association is committed to transforming the lives of people affected by muscular dystrophy, ALS and related neuromuscular diseases through innovations in science and innovations in care.
As one more way to advance our mission, we are activating the power of story to create connection, inspire self-advocacy, and build understanding for what it’s like to live with neuromuscular disease.
Over the course of the next several weeks, we’re asking children, adults, family members, caregivers and MDA volunteers to share their stories on this website. When all stories have been submitted, we will choose a set of stories that artists will bring to life in illustrated videos to share with the world.
