Donate your leftover currency to Cure Myotonic Dystrophy UK Charity (CDM)

Help support families, facilitate research and raise awareness of this devastating condition.

Cure DM supports those living with myotonic dystrophy, their families and caregivers, particularly those affected with congenital and childhood onset.

  • Congenital means ‘at birth’. There are other forms of myotonic dystrophy, ‘congenital’ is the most severe form.
  • Myotonic means ‘contraction of muscles’. Myotonia often presents itself in the hands, and is an inability to release grip, due to the contraction of the muscles.
  • Dystrophy refers to the wastage of muscles.

A child with congenital myotonic dystrophy, or ‘CDM’ as it is also known, is often, but not always, diagnosed at birth or fairly soon after. They will likely have spent some time in neo-natal intensive care, with help with breathing and feeding.

Once discharged, the child is likely to have many appointments with different specialists, such as: speech and language, occupational therapy, sleep clinic, cardiology and most importantly a specialist neurologist.
