We recognize the significant costs associated with having an MD family member. The limitations on work for parents or caregivers often leave many MD families financially strapped. If you find yourself in this situation, we will be seeking help for you!
A group, family or other organization will have the opportunity to get a list from you on things your family needs. The general guidelines would be food for a holiday meal, and a gift for each family member.
Please note, there is no guarantee that we will be able to identify enough donors to ensure every family can be helped. This is a pilot program and we will prioritize based on information provided and financial situation. Our hope is that everyone that needs help will receive it!

Is a family vacation just not within your budget?
Andrew Seever served on our board for 3 years, and lived nearly 28 years with Muscular Dystrophy. His family was blessed to have the means to take a family vacation each year, and it was something Andrew loved. In memory of Andrew and his passing this year, we are giving away a family vacation to Pigeon Forge, Tennessee!
The trip will include a rental for a wheelchair accessible van, hotel and funds to cover food. Total costs not to exceed $1750. We know traveling with a handicapped family member requires much planning and research on accommodations and activities. We will provide you with an MDFF family member to help you with your trip planning and making arrangements that fit your families needs!
APPLY HERE by November 15th!
In an effort to help MD families connect with other MD patients and caregivers living with the same disease and/or living in the same geographic area, we are planning on publishing an MDFF Directory. You may opt in to be included in the directory and choose how much information you want to share!
Our goal is to have it ready to distribute at the Holiday Party on Dec. 3rd.

Thank you to the 2017 Walkers who came out and walked with us and all the donors who gave to help MD families!
The 2018 walk is May 20th! Bring your family and even your pet and join us at Walking for Dreams 5K Family and Pet Walk and raise funds for families with Muscular Dystrophy! The walk starts and ends at the Canal at Buggs Temple.
You can Register as an individual, a family or even start a team and select Muscular Dystrophy Family Foundation when you register! This is a great opportunity for a group of kids, teens or adults to engage in a healthy activity by walking for those who have suffered the rare disease of MD and have to live with declining mobility. Something we all take for granted.
