Jean Sharon Abbott spent nearly all of her life believing she had an incurable condition that left her feeling "trapped" in her own body -- unaware that many of her symptoms could be easily treated with a pill.

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.
