If you are a dystonia patient in Calgary, and you are interested in getting involved with a support group in your community, we would love to hear from you. Please email Stefanie Ince, Executive Director and let us know you are interested in getting involved. 

And to make sure we create a support group schedule that works for everyone, we have created a short survey. Please consider filling it out, so that we are aware of your specific interests, and availability. 

The Dystonia Medical Research Foundation (DMRF) Canada is the only organization that is dedicated to supporting the 50,000 patients in Canada that suffer from dystonia, a neurological movement disorder that affects the nervous system. Abnormal signaling from the brain causes muscles to tighten and twist involuntarily. There are several forms of dystonia, and dystonia may be a symptom of many diseases and conditions.

For over 40 years, the DMRF Canada has fought for those impacted by dystonia, working toward better treatments and a cure; funding research, providing advocacy and support, and raising awareness of this devastating disorder.

Join us, and be a part of the global effort to find a cure.
