Thanks to MDF community volunteers, 2013 was a great year for the Myotonic Dystrophy Foundation. In addition to launching our Medical Professionals Referral List and celebrating National Family Caregivers Month, volunteers around the country worked tirelessly to put on a record number of events, bringing our grassroots fundraising total to over $170,000!
Please join us in welcoming Conor Lynch to the MDF team! Conor is our new Program Associate assisting with program support, fund development support, day-to-day operations and IT.
Last month we celebrated the many amazing caregivers in our community as part of National Family Caregivers Month.
It's been a very impactful year for myotonic dystrophy and MDF, and we're excited about what's ahead in the search for treatments and a cure for DM.
At the 2013 MDF conference, Dr. Tom Cooper of Baylor College of Medicine presented a summary of the ninth meeting of the International Myotonic Dystrophy Consortium (IDMC).
