Action Alert- Reauthorize the MD CARE Act

ACTION ALERT: Help Reauthorization from Home

2013 AdvocatesReauthorizing the MD CARE Act - Lend your voice to our efforts!

In February 2013, a bipartisan group of Senators and Representatives introduced the MD CARE Act Amendments. This legislation – S. 315 and H.R. 594 – seeks to update the landmark MD CARE Act law that has done so much over the past 13 years to extend and improve life for those impacted by Duchenne and other forms of Muscular Dystrophy and to spur breakthroughs in research that are hopefully getting us closer to effective therapies and treatments. We currently have 78 House members and 17 Senators cosponsoring the MD CARE Act Amendments - We need more cosponsors to enact these Amendments this year.
