Kennedy's Disease Association

A Public Benefit, Non-Profit Organization

"I had just been diagnosed with Kennedy's Disease and had no idea what it was or what to expect. The KDA maintains an excellent website that explains the disease. I found details on symptoms, the cause, and exercises I could do to maintain my strength."


The KDA's mission is to inform, support, educate, fund research, and find a cure for Kennedy's Disease
