    About Muscular Dystrophy

     

    Muscular dystrophy is a neuromuscular, genetic disorder which results in the progressive deterioration of muscle strength and function. There are in excess of 70 types of muscular dystrophy affecting more than 20,000 Australians.

    Western Australians living with muscular dystrophy face daily challenges – their muscles waste away which steals their independence, they are confined to electric wheelchairs because they can no longer walk, and in many cases, each day, it becomes more difficult for them to breathe.
