50th Anniversary Donation Header

In 2017 Muscular Dystrophy WA celebrated 50 years of funding research and supporting the Western Australian Muscular Dystrophy Community.

Muscular Dystrophy WA was founded in 1967 by a small group of parents in conjunction with the Rotary Club of West Perth and Professor Byron Kakulas. Today, Muscular Dystrophy WA provides an extensive range of services for Western Australians impacted by muscular dystrophy. We are an organisation passionate about improving the quality of life for people living with muscular dystrophy.

Muscular Dystrophy WA joined the national Muscular Dystrophy Foundation Australia in 2010 and with the strength of a combined voice across the country, we aim to help all those living with muscular dystrophy to live a life they love and reach their full potential, without compromising the quest for effective treatments.

By providing personal support, advice and services, understanding and advocacy, and through connecting families and communities, Muscular Dystrophy WA strives to empower individuals to make decisions about their life and treatment. We are passionate about seeing people first and enabling the things people strive to do. We approach challenges together, bringing our vibrance, enthusiasm, innovation, understanding and support to create new solutions that empower full lives.
