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 Samantha J. Brazzo 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.

La Fundación Andrés Marcio, niños contra la Laminopatía, es una organización sin animo de lucro, cuya principal vocación es la promoción de proyectos de investigación de una enfermedad que afecta a los niños y que se llama Laminopatía CMD, por deficit de Lamina A/C.

Esta grave y rara enfermedad afecta a muy pocos niños en el mundo, motivo por el cual ni los Estados, ni las Administraciones, laboratorios, etc. dedican recursos a investigarla, siendo los padres y familiares de estos niños quienes nos vemos en la necesidad de afrontar la captación de recursos, con el fin último de descubrir tramamientos para prolongar su vida en las mejores condiciones posibles, mientras se descubra la curación de enfermedad. Es por ello, que debemos implicar al y sensibilizar al máximo a las diferentes Administraciones e instituciones privadas para que presten toda la colaboración posible.

Es también un objetivo prioritario para la Fundación conseguir que se coordinen a nivel internacional todos los equipos de investigación, los facultativos que tratan a los pacientes y las familias de los niños enfermos, con esto se conseguirá un máximo aprovechamiento de los recursos y se acortará, sin duda, el camino hacia el tratamiento de la enfermedad. Todos los patrocinadores, colaboradores y directores de los proyectos mundiales de investigación que se realicen deben estar coordinados y aprovechar al máximo las herramientas que la tecnología actual nos brinda para una mayor efectividad.
