Daniel Ferguson Foundation
Eliminate LGMD / Control your future
Welcome to the Daniel Ferguson Foundation, the first organisation of its type in Australia to focus on Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy Type 2A/R1 (LGMD2A/R1).
At 17, Daniel Ferguson was diagnosed with LGMD2A/R1 a genetic disorder characterised by wasting and weakness of the hip and shoulder muscles in the limb-girdle area. The Daniel Ferguson Foundation has been established to support families living through their own LGMD story.
It aims to support those living with all types of LGMD by improving their quality of life, increasing community awareness of the disorder and funding much-needed research into this disease for which no cure exists.
