That doesn't make sense. They raised more money this last year then usual. What are they talking about?! I'm sorry but that is so full of BS!!! Another of the MDA's games they play! If this is so true why do they say they provide w/c's etc.etc..in the telethons?
I would suggest you verifty this with the corporate office because is ths is true they committ fraud on the telethon. They can't claim some thing on tv and turn around and tell the families something else. The w/c funds is suppose to be one of the major things of the MDA. They made money then in the past and yet suddenly they are short? BS!!!
Is this going to be true across the board for all MDA Associations?
Recently we received a 3rd class mailer-flyer from MDA. They apologized for the 3rd class-ness and stated it was because they can't afford regular mail services. It stinks that they cut scooters/wheelchairs from their menu. What's left for kids with DMD? It appears MDA has become an organization that simply helps victims of hurricanes (remember Katrina) now...
Its across the board. We got a letter in the mail yesterday and our east Texas MDA lady called us and told us. The did not say anything in the telethon because this just came across now..
