Together investing in a cure for FSH muscular dystrophy

Nearly $310,000 Raised!

Well, we eventually had to close down at midnight. We think everyone found their shoes before stumbling off to bed. All in all, it seems to have been a great success, with the most raised ever for FSHD research. And it is an amazing time for your investment in this research too. With several potential therapeutics coming out of the research that you have funded, our Scientific Advisory Board has been able to consider clinical trial preparation.

See the most recent Research Grants funded by you.
