The MD-CARE Act Reauthorization: Update on Efforts

Updated 3/07/14:  109 total members- New additions in bold below


We continue to make progress on the Reauthorization of the MD-CARE Act. Thanks to you, we have already collected a number of cosponsors for the legislation. It’s a strong start and we must continue to tell our story to congress and explain why renewing this critical legislation is paramount to all those living with Duchenne and all those diagnosed tomorrow and beyond. Please continue to send the message to friends and family and ask them to take action
