NMD United was born from the idea that adults with neuromuscular disabilities need a way to connect, share knowledge, support each other, and empower one another. NMD United is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization governed by a board of adults living active and independent lives with neuromuscular disabilities, bringing to the table diverse backgrounds and skill sets, yet all having shared similar experiences that create a sense of community. Together, they have established NMD United.
Today, more than 1,950 members, all of whom are adults with neuromuscular disabilities, are continuing to connect and create an organization based on a unique body of knowledge and experience about what it means to live with a neuromuscular disability. NMD United was created to capture and document what we as a community have learned while living with lifelong neuromusular disabilities, to create a forum for continued support and growth driven by people with NMD for people with NMD.
