About muscular dystrophy
The one with muscular dystrophy (MD) cannot walk, turn round in bed, drink a glass of water and some people with MD cannot neither breathe on their own. Muscular dystrophy is serious progressive disease of the all muscles including heart, breathing and swallowing muscles. It affects children and adults too. The progression of MD cannot be stopped and there is no cure for it.
Despite of this MD people desire to be independent and to live their lives at maximum. This is possible thanks to the special aids/tools/equipment like lighten mechanical wheelchair for home use, electric wheelchair for outdoor use, positioning beds with special mattresses to sleep without any pain, lifters for different usage, etc. To get these aids the people with MD have to pay from hundreds to thousands of Euros.
Support the people with the muscular dystrophy and contribute them for buying the specialised compensation aids.
