2019 Scarecrow Competition

MDWA is a small organisation making a big impact. They are passionate about improving the quality of life for people living with neuromuscular conditions, working with hundreds of families to get the best support & services they need, as well as connecting them to others with similar conditions, – enabling them to lead full lives… They call it Support for Life.
We can provide extra info if you have the need for it and if you want something about the condition you can use the following.
Muscular dystrophy is a group of genetic neuromuscular conditions where muscles slowly degenerate and weaken. MDWA supports around 800 families in Western Australia who are affected by it.
The impact of the condition varies dependent on the type but generally includes issues with walking, lifting, speaking and breathing. In some types it impacts life expectancy significantly.
