THE LEGACY NO ONE W\XANTS TO IINIHEIPJT It's incurable, progressive, and usually terminal. There are no beneficiaries of this bequest. Muscular dystrophy leaves only casualties. It's a group of genetic diseases that weakens muscles and finally destroys them. The recipients are primarily children. Yet, it doesn't exclude adults. Any member of the family can get it, at any time. We at MDA are in constant search of cures or treatments for muscular dystrophy. It's one group of the 40 neuromuscular diseases we cover. The legacy we strive to leave is one of hope and good health. We'll need your help to succeed. Muscular Dystrophy Association. Jerry Lewis. National Chairman Put more muscle behind it.
