Description:

The Muscular Dystrophy Association is a voluntary national health agency -- a dedicated partnership between scientists and concerned citizens aimed at conquering neuromuscular diseases that affect more than a million Americans. Local MDA offices nationwide are available to serve anyone with one of the neuromuscular diseases in the Association's program. Energized by its national chairman, Jerry Lewis, who has been the Association's number-one volunteer for 50 years, MDA today is one of the world's leading voluntary health agencies fostering research and medical care. Programs available by MDA are funded almost entirely by individual private contributors. The Association receives no government grants. How Did MDA Get Started? As late as 1950, very little was being done to combat neuromuscular disease. In that year, a small group of parents whose youngsters had muscular dystrophy decided to do something about this, and MDA was born. Those parents firmly believed that there are no incurable diseases, only diseases for which no treatments have yet been found. That basic philosophy has animated MDA ever since.
