About our work
Muscular dystrophy associations throughout Australia offer whole of life support and assistance to individuals and families who live with muscular dystrophy and other neuromuscular conditions.
While the most severe neuromuscular conditions often appear in infancy and childhood, in others forms, symptoms do not appear until adulthood. Often more severe forms significantly reduce life expectancy, while others affect only particular muscle groups. All neuromuscular conditions are progressive, reducing mobility and strength. Although treatments have become available in recent years, there is no cure for muscular dystrophy. We work with Australians of all ages, boys and girls, men and women, their families and carers, to assist them to enhance the quantity and quality of their lives.
Seeking your support
Muscular Dystrophy Foundation Australia seeks strong, enduring and mutually rewarding partnerships with corporate and philanthropic organisations who share our commitment to fostering and nurturing a community of support for the children, young people, adults and families whose lives are affected by neuromuscular disorders.
