Kennedy's Disease Association

A Public Benefit, Non-Profit Organization

"Back in the late 1990s, I felt alone. I had just been diagnosed with Kennedy's Disease. I came across the KDA and attended a Saturday chat. What an eye opener! There were two dozen others on the chat that were going through what I was experiencing."

The KDA Family

First and foremost, the KDA is a Family

We came together because we had a common bond

Every day we live with Kennedy's Disease

We stay together because we are now friends with a common goal

We all seek a treatment or cure


 Our family continues to grow

  • 613 men with the defective gene

  • 181 women that are carriers
