My Story…

I have dystonia. I am walking for dystonia in the hope that one day, with your help, we may find a cure for this terrible movement disorder.


Dystonia is a neurological movement disorder that causes muscles in the body to contract or spasm involuntarily. Primary dystonia affects approximately 50,000 Canadians. Watch this short video to learn more. 

The mission of the Dystonia Medical Research Foundation (DMRF) Canada is to advance research for more treatments and ultimately a cure; to promote awareness and education and to support the needs and well being of affected individuals and families. For more information, click here
