The DMRF Canada is more than an organization dedicated to curing dystonia; it's a place to belong when dystonia turns your life upside down. The DMRF Canada is committed to providing information and support for affected individuals and families while doing everything possible to advance research toward a cure.
We often hear from our members how contact with the DMRF Canada was first time they felt understood, the first time they found answers: how to locate a qualified physician, a clear explanation of their dystonia diagnosis, an understanding of treatment options.
One of the DMRF Canada's highest priorities is providing connection to individuals and families who feel alone. At nearly every awareness, advocacy, or fundraising event, we meet at least one person who had never met someone else with dystonia face-to-face until that day. In keeping with the DMRF Canada's commitment to keep families connected dozens of education and community events are planned.
The DMRF Canada Support Group Network provides an opportunity for people with dystonia to come together - they can reach out and help one another, learn more about dystonia through education, guest speakers, help raise the profile of dystonia through awareness programs and contribute to research through local fundraising efforts.
Make sure you sign up for our E-newsletters so that you can stay connected to the dystonia community.
