Financial Assistance

The Muscular Dystrophy Family Foundation provides financial assistance—including accessibility equipment and other vital resources—to families in Indiana affected by muscular dystrophy and other neuromuscular diseases.


Greater Mobility, Greater Freedom

While advancements and treatments provide hope, our immediate goal is to provide families with equipment and services to help reduce or eliminate some of the day-to-day challenges that go with living with neuromuscular diseases.

MDFF supports the purchase of items like wheelchairs (and wheelchair components), hospital beds, van lifts, ramps for homes, bathroom modifications, bathroom equipment, shower chairs, and more.

How Can We Help Your Family?

MDFF will assist with anything that promotes quality of life, independence, mobility, or safe living; However, we do not assist with the cost of clinical trials, gene therapies, research, or medicine.

If you need help, let us know. We are always accepting applications for assistance. Outside of the Accessible Van Giveaway Program, there’s no deadline or application window for financial assistance. 

Thanks to our generous donors, we are able to fulfill many requests for financial assistance for muscular dystrophy patients; However, we reserve the right to decline any application or ask for additional information before making a final decision.

Fill out the financial assistance application form or call (317) 615-9140 to tell us more about yourself and how MDFF can help you. 

The applicant must be diagnosed with muscular dystrophy or a neuromuscular disease (see applicable diseases listed on the MDA website)

“I lost my job after falling into a display case and I was losing strength daily because my muscles were weakening. My wife, who has fibromyalgia, was struggling to help me. Getting the toilet lift from MDFF has made a huge difference and given me the feeling of independence and freedom again.”
