MDF is pleased to announce the launch of a new program, MDF DM Days. These special one-day free events will be held in three locations across the U.S. in 2017, bringing together clinicians, researchers and MDF community members to share information and resources.
MDF's youngest fundraiser? Six-year-old Asher Adleberg! The MDF community has done an amazing job of hosting parties, golf tournaments, crawfish boils, foot races and other events to support Care and a Cure for DM. We have some amazing stories to share, and some fun upcoming events you might want to put on your calendar.
In 2016, MDF’s Warmline received many phone calls from MDF community members who struggled to complete the application process for federal and state disability benefits, and who needed guidance on how to navigate the complex application process.
2016 was a banner year for the Myotonic Dystrophy Foundation. We completed our 10th year driving Care and a Cure for people and families living with DM, wrapped up year 2 of a 3-year, $5M drug development acceleration effort and oversaw the largest expansion of our Care programming and resources ever.
One family was so inspired by last week’s matching gift that they’ve offered another very generous donation to keep the momentum going! Community members Rick and Paget Haylon will match the next $5,000 donated to MDF through December 10th.
