Mission Statement

To assist the people of Queensland affected by Muscular Dystrophy and neuromuscular disorders, to meet their needs, and enhance their quality of life.

Description

Muscular Dystrophy Queensland supports families living with muscular dystrophy and other neuromuscular conditions. Muscular dystrophy is the name given to a group of neuromuscular disorders caused by a genetic abnormality. These progressive conditions cause irreversible muscle weakness, often resulting in profound disability.There is no cure. Living with a progressive condition can be financially, physically and emotionally straining, not just for those who have the condition but for the whole family. As a result, Muscular Dystrophy Queenslands clients are some of the most vulnerable in our community.We work at the coalface, assisting our clients to create lasting, life-enhancing changes to improve the quality of their lives. With an eye on tomorrow, we also support research that might one day find a cure. Funds donated will allow MDQ to continue this vital work and have substantial impact for the Queensland families desperately in need.
