OUR FUNDING PARTNERS
We want to say “THANK YOU” to Claudia Mitchell and Jean-Pierre Laurent (LGMD2i Fund), Dr. Anne Rutkowski (CureCMD) and Herb Stevenson (The Stevenson Family Fund) with whom we have been working to collaborate our efforts in supporting research for the Dystroglycanopathies. We are grateful to have you all fighting this battle with us – together we will find a way to conquer LGMD2i.
BUILDING AWARENESS IN THE LGMD COMMUNITY
We are also part of the LGMD Awareness Day effort and just celebrated our 2nd Annual LGMD Awareness Day on September 30, 2016. Carol Abraham (Pictured lower right) has done an excellent job of spearheading a consortium of many different Limb Girdle groups coming together to build awareness of this rare disease. Check out the LGMD Awareness website and join in celebrating with us on September 30, 2017.
Lacey Woods (Pictured Lower Left) has created a wonderful online presence for the LGMD2i Community. Her website, www.lgmd2i.com and facebook page are great resources for those who are diagnosed with LGMD2i. There are currently over 600 active members on the LGMD2i facebook page, which continues to grow! Please consider joining the group by clicking on the link above.
