Limb Girdle Muscular Dystrophy Type 2I (LGMD2I) is a progressively debilitating disease caused by weakness and muscle wasting mainly the shoulder and hip areas. Over time, this excessive muscle wasting can result in cardiovascular, respiratory and overall physical complications typically beginning in early adolescence.
To date, CureLGMD2i has funded nearly $600,000 to research programs that are working aggressively to establish a treatment for LGMD2I. Although we are thrilled with the generosity of our friends, family and local businesses who have donated to our cause, we continue to rely on your support to award grants to ongoing research projects. We are hopeful that with the groundbreaking work being done with gene therapy, CRISPR technique, stem cells, drug screenings and clinical trials, a successful treatment will halt the progression of LGMD2I.
If you are interested in contributing toward research for a cure for Limb Girdle Muscular Dystrophy, we would appreciate your financial donation. Please share this website with anyone whom you feel would be interested in helping us conquer this disease.
