I was misdiagnosed for many years. Going without a Dystonia diagnosis means going without proper treatment. Dystonia can put a hold on a person’s life at any age. I want more doctors to understand Dystonia so that patients can be diagnosed sooner and receive proper treatment for better quality of life. 6 years after diagnosis, I am starting to repair the damage that could have been prevented with a diagnosis and earlier intervention. I want better treatments for patients who aren’t having as much success with the current treatments available as I am. I appreciate everything DMRF does for Dystonia patients and want them to have all the financial support possible.

Throughout February support Mishka and the other pets registered for DMRF’s Dystonia Pet Palooza by making a donation today.
