Cam­paign­ing char­ity

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - News -

THE Mus­cu­lar Dys­tro­phy Cam­paign is a char­ity which works to find treat­ment and cures for var­i­ous mus­cle-wast­ing dis­eases. In the UK, 70,000 peo­ple suf­fer from mus­cu­lar dys­tro­phy or a re­lated con­di­tion. It causes mus­cles in the body to waste and weaken, mak­ing even the sim­plest of tasks im­pos­si­ble. It does not just af­fect mus­cles in the arms and legs, but also those in the heart and res­pi­ra­tory sys­tem. There are no cures, and many with the con­di­tion do not sur­vive to adult­hood.
