WHY I GIVE TO THE NSDA

“In 2010, I was asked by the NSDA to be involved with the Dystonia Advocacy Network. I went to Washington, DC, to present an award to the Congressman from my district. This was the best thing that ever happened to me. I had not done any public speaking since my symptoms of SD began, but now, here I was speaking to legislators about a topic so important to me. While there is no cure, research can help improve treatment options and help fund future research. It was the NSDA that has helped me improve my self-esteem and feel great again. Assuring that the NSDA can continue to help others is so important to me and that’s why I give.

CONNECT WITH OTHERS

I understand. Those two powerful words can bring relief, comfort, and affirmation to your experience. We can connect you with people who have walked in your shoes. Whether it is through NSDA Support Group, Area Contacts, on-line support, local meetings, or symposiums, know the challenges of living with a voice disorder.
