DMRF Canada is very pleased to announce the formation of the Vancouver Support Group with Co-Leaders Jackson Mooney and Robin Krantz. 

The Dystonia Medical Research Foundation (DMRF) Canada is the only organization that is dedicated to supporting the 50,000 patients in Canada that suffer from dystonia, a neurological movement disorder that affects the nervous system. Abnormal signaling from the brain causes muscles to tighten and twist involuntarily. There are several forms of dystonia, and dystonia may be a symptom of many diseases and conditions.

For over 40 years, the DMRF Canada has fought for those impacted by dystonia, working toward better treatments and a cure; funding research, providing advocacy and support, and raising awareness of this devastating disorder.

Join us, and be a part of the global effort to find a cure.
