Thank you Muscular Dystrophy Family Foundation!
Ramp For the Home
14 year old Joshua is getting good use of the new ramp on their home. Joshua is pictured here with his mother who is grateful for the support of MDFF. Through MDFF’s cooperation with Servants At Work, we were able to assist this family who is now rebuilding after a period of homelessness.
A broken lift on the back of the family’s vehicle had made much needed transportation nearly impossible. After contacting us, MDFF was able to arrange for the repair work to be quickly completed. This family is working through the challenges of having 3 generations with muscular dystrophy.
Dad, a former carpenter, was diagnosed with a form of MD- Charcot Marie Tooth at age 26. MDFF has assisted this family previously with home modifications.
Home Modifications Provided
As a single mother of 3 teens with muscular dystrophy atrophy, independence is important. MDFF made it possible for us to have an automatic door opener for the main entrance to our home, and each of the kids has an opener on their wheelchair. My plate is full caring for my children. I enjoy seeing my children have greater independence, and it is one less responsibility for me. I remember the first day the school bus arrived after the door was installed. My daughter had such joy and excitement as she realized for the first time, she could get to the bus entirely on her own.
Thank You…Thank You for The New Ramp
“Words cannot express our appreciation for the MDFF in helping to make our home ramp a reality. The kids are so happy, and it has made a huge difference in the mobility and the independence of our family. Thank you for all you do to help the needs of the families affected by muscular dystrophy.”
