We're thrilled to announce that Casey Kidson, Founder of Dyfying Dystonia, has been recognized as the 2017 recipient of the Change-Maker Award by Neurological Health Charities Canada (NHCC); a coalition of organizations that represent people with brain diseases, disorders and injuries in Canada. The NHCC Change-Maker Award, first launched in 2011, aims to recognize outstanding contributions and leadership in inclusion, innovation and integration for the benefit of Canadians living with brain conditions.

“I am absolutely honoured and beyond grateful to have been selected as the 2017 Change-Maker recipient”, said Casey; “when your goals are driven through your passion, it is incredible the difference you can make without even realizing the ripple of change you are creating. My Dyfying Dystonia campaign continues to lead me through an incredible journey presenting opportunities and challenges I once only dreamt of achieving”

“NHCC is delighted to present the 2017 Change-Maker Award to Casey. She epitomizes the creativity and courage of the millions living with brain conditions. Casey is truly an inspiration to others living who have dystonia and other brain conditions,” said Joyce Gordon, NHCC chair.

Now - Casey has issued a challenge to the dystonia community – she’s asking the 50,000 Canadians who suffer from dystonia in Canada to defy dystonia in their own way – either getting fit, or taking a course, or raising awareness of dystonia in their communities.
