Meet Our Partners

Finding a treatment or cure is a TEAM approach. We are not in this alone and there is strength in numbers. Cure CMD has actively pursued partnerships with other organizations to help drive momentum, share strategies and resources. Partnership may come in the form of co-funding a research grant, co-sponsoring annual infrastructure costs, such as the CMDIR, and co-hosting Webinars to provide the community with information on care and management. Cure CMD embraces partnership as key to meeting our mission: finding a treatment and cure for the CMDs and related limb girdle spectrum disorders.

Samantha Brazzo has been diagnosed with a progressive disease called Limb Girdle Muscular Dystrophy (LGMD2I). She is a beautiful little girl who faces physical challenges daily. In the midst of receiving Sammy’s diagnosis in 2010, the Brazzo Family established The Cure LGMD2i Foundation with the hopes of supporting the scientific efforts toward a treatment or cure for this debilitating disease. Although scientists are actively and aggressively working on a cure for this disease, without adequate funding, the research cannot continue to move forward at a rapid pace. With your help, we can provide these scientists with the financial support they need to achieve their mission of curing LGMD2I. We are a 501(c)(3) approved tax exempt public charity. In addition, we are a zero-cost non-profit organization, therefore; 100% of all donations will be used to provide an annual research grant.
