Resources for those with neuromuscular disease.

At an MDA Lock-Up star
I spent part of my day recently “locked-up.” No, not in a real jail, but with all of the “jailbirds” participating in a local Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) Lock-Up. While raising money, participants also raise awareness of neuromuscular disease and MDA programs.

Charcot-Marie-Tooth Association Circle of Friends star
I have a confession to make – I have no practical experience in fundraising. I have never put together a fundraiser on my own and find the task daunting. Recently I ventured into the fundraising arena in one of the simplest ways possible, through starting a Circle of Friends with the CMTA.

CMT and Physical Therapy Training Resource star
Because Charcot Marie Tooth is relatively rare, many physical therapists do not have much training or experience with CMT. The Charcot Marie Tooth Association (CMTA)and Physiotherapy Associates, Inc. (PTA) have partnered to provide a resource for physical therapists and their patients.

CMT Awareness Month 2013 star
The organizers of the CMT Awareness Month 2013 began planning for the 2013 event shortly after the successful 2012 CMT Awareness Month ended. Through this event, the Charcot Marie Tooth Association (CMTA) educates the public and raises awareness about Charcot Marie Tooth (CMT).

Coping with Chronic Neuropathy DVD Review star
In the DVD Coping with Chronic Neuropathy, Eugene Richardson brings uncommon understanding of neuropathy from his perspective as a long-term neuropathy patient, professional counselor, and patient advocate. He also displays humor and hope while covering this difficult topic.

Disease Registries for Neuromuscular Disease star
Disease registries have been formed to aid researchers searching for qualified individuals to participate as subjects in research protocols. Such research is needed to advance knowledge regarding the diagnosis and treatment of neuromuscular disease.

Educational Webinars from the CMTA star
The Charcot Marie Tooth Association (CMTA) now offers free educational webinars featuring top experts. Topics include a variety of topics related to diagnosis, treatment, and living with Charcot Marie Tooth (CMT). Make sure to view these important educational webinars.

Fill the Boot for the MDA star
When you see your local firefighters campaigning to raise funds for the MDA through Fill-the-Boot, make sure to say thank you. Let them know how the MDA has helped you and your family. And, make sure to help fill the boot!

Free Resources from the MDA star
The Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) offers a variety of free resources about neuromuscular disease. Updated regularly, these resources cover a wide variety of topics related to neuromuscular disease.

Inherited Neuropathies Consortium star
Registering with the ICN was quick and easy. If you have CMT, consider registering with the INC so that you can be part of the search for more effective treatments and cures for the inherited neuropathies.

International Neuromuscular Disease Websites star
People from all over the world suffer from neuromuscular disease, and need to find accurate, appropriate, and effective information, support, and services. This article lists some of the web-links to organizations that serve the worldwide neuromuscular diseases community.

With a new slogan of MDA SHOW of STRENGTH, the 2012 MDA Telethon will again have a changed format, running on Sunday, September 2, from 8:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. ET. As always, it will include performances, celebrity appearances, and feature stories those affected by neuromuscular disease.

MDA Transitions Center star
The Muscular Dystrophy Association Transitions Center focuses on the needs of teens and young adults with neuromuscular disease. Launched in 2011, this site offers support, information, and resources targeting this group while also raising awareness of the challenges this group will experience.

MDA's Free Public Webinar Series star
Since 2010, the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) has produced a series of free live and archived educational presentations called the Public Webinar Series. Expert-led topics include a variety of important issues. Make time to attend a high quality educational presentation from your own home.

MDA’s Shamrocks Against Dystrophy Program 2014 star
Retailers all over the U.S.A. sell green Shamrocks and gold Shamrocks. The money raised through the Shamrocks Against Dystrophy Program funds research, education, summer camps through the MDA. In 2013, Shamrocks raised a record-breaking $23.3 million!

Medical Equipment Assistance Programs star
Many individuals with neuromuscular disease require medical equipment. The cost of equipment can be prohibitive, however, and medical insurance does not always provide good coverage. Fortunately, there are programs available to assist individuals in obtaining the needed equipment.

Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) Resources star
Find out about the many resources offered by the MDA for those with neuromuscular diseases, including information, clinics, research, and summer camp for kids.

My Family Health Portrait Resource star

Neurology Now Magazine star
Neurology Now, a magazine published by the American Academy of Neurology, and its companion website provide readers with accurate and readable articles about a variety of neurological diseases, including neuromuscular disease.

Shambassador Tales star
As area businesses again blossomed with green and gold Shamrock’s during February and March of 2014, I was again asked by my regional MDA office to act as a Shambassador. My duties would include visiting area businesses that participate in the MDA Shamrocks program to say thank you.

Support Groups for Neuromuscular Disease star
If you do not yet belong to a support group, I strongly urge you to find a support group in your area. The relationships that you build will help you to live, cope, and maybe even thrive despite neuromuscular disease.

Thank You Jerry Lewis star
For more than 50 years, Jerry Lewis tirelessly served the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) and the neuromuscular diseases community, raising both funds and awareness. The magnitude of Lewis’ service cannot be denied and will not be forgotten.
