The Foundation to Eradicate Duchenne is not involved in funding any services for the Muscular Dystrophy community, nor are there plans to ever do so. On this front, there is no peer to the resources of the Muscular Dystrophy Association, which conducts first-rate services such as camp for Muscular Dystrophy kids, subsidies for braces, wheelchairs and other equipment associated with the terrible financial toll that neuromuscular disease inflicts on tens of thousands of Americans. We at the Foundation to Eradicate Duchenne find the local offices of the MDA to be staffed with wonderful, caring, exemplary persons who are incredibly dedicated to the individuals and families of those with Muscular Dystrophy. The MDA also has a research portfolio that is divided among more than 40 different (and often far-flung) neuromuscular diseases.
