Your data is critical in the fight
to defeat Duchenne.

The Canadian Neuromuscular Disease Registry (CNDR) is a Canada-wide registry of people diagnosed with a neuromuscular disease, like Duchenne or Becker muscular dystrophy. It safely and securely collects important medical information from patients across the country to facilitate research that benefits patients, families and caregivers. Those who participate can feel confident they are helping to promote the development of effective therapies for neuromuscular diseases.

Defeat Duchenne Canada was an original funder of the CNDR, and to date, has contributed more than $1 million towards the development and maintenance of the registry.

Currently, over 4,600 neuromuscular patients have registered from across Canada and Defeat Duchenne Canada encourages you to join!
