“Never believe that a few caring people can’t change the world. For, indeed that’s all who ever have.” -Margaret Mead
Welcome to Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy’s Advocacy Center. With over a decade invested in advocacy, our advocacy initiative helps families gain a sense of accomplishment and empowerment. We hope that you will take a moment to read about the history of PPMD’s advocacy efforts, our past successes, and what actions are currently needed.
Since our organized advocacy efforts began in 2000, the voice of the Duchenne community has helped to leverage over $500 million into muscular dystrophy research, with over $250 million of that for Duchenne-specific research. Our collective efforts have also helped to establish standards of care in Duchenne for the first time in history.
