Over the past few months, our team has spent time researching our history and discovering wonderful secrets that have laid buried in archive. As we celebrate Muscular Dystrophy WA’s 50th Anniversary, it is a time to reflect on all that has been achieved over the past 50 years – all that YOU have helped us achieve.

Since our inception in 1967, our pillar of strength has been our commitment and investment into world-renowned research.

Your support throughout the years has been vital in delivering many scientific advances which continues to improve the quality of life for our community.

As I write this, ground breaking human trials are taking place in the US and parts of Europe for a drug developed by our Perth scientists, designed to slow the life-limiting effects of a common variant of Duchenne muscular dystrophy.

While this is an important milestone, we must still create an opportunity for these clinical trials in Western Australia to ensure our local community has any chance of accessing this and other future treatments under Australian law.

Please help us make this dream a reality.

A clinical trial requires a holistic and coordinated approach. Muscular Dystrophy WA is committed to collaborating, advocating and ultimately, fundraising, to create a clinical trial environment in WA.

On behalf of every Western Australian affected by muscular dystrophy, I extend our heartfelt thanks for any assistance that you can provide in our 50th Anniversary year. Please fill out the attached donation form, or contact our friendly staff on 08 9380 3400.

Finally thank you for the contribution you have made in supporting the Muscular Dystrophy Community, we couldn’t have done it without you.

It does not stop here. Stay on the journey with us to empower full lives.
