The Muscular Dystrophy Campaign

Description:

The Muscular Dystrophy Campaign is the only UK charity focusing on muscular dystrophy and related muscle diseases. It has pioneered the search for treatments and cures for over 45 years and provides practical, medical and emotional support to people affected by the condition, and campaigns to increase Government research spending. Muscular dystrophy is the gradual and relentless wasting and/or weakening of muscles. It affects babies, young people and adults of any race and background. The condition is genetic and often inherited, but can appear spontaneously in an individual without any prior history in the family. There are no current cures. The Muscular Dystrophy Campaign provides a range of support and care services through a network of Care Advisors based at clinics around the UK. The team provides support, expert advice on specific conditions, equipment and adaptations and a national information service. The charity is a leading funder of research into muscular dystrophy and related muscle diseases. Work is ongoing to help identify the genes responsible, improve understanding of the underlying causes and search for potential treatments and cures.
