Supporting Science and Building Awareness for LGMD2i!

Limb Girdle Muscular Dystrophy Type 2I/R9 (LGMD2I/R9) is a progressively debilitating disease that causes profound muscle wasting and weakness, mainly in the shoulder and hip areas. This congenital disease is a rare form of Muscular Dystrophy. Over time, this excessive muscle wasting can result in cardiovascular, respiratory and overall physical complications. To date, the CureLGMD2i Foundation (formerly known as The Samantha J. Brazzo Foundation) has provided over $1,120,000 to research, advocacy and awareness programs focused on LGMD2I/R9.
