Dr Hambleton and AMAQ Foundation Executive Officer Neil Mackintosh recently visited MD Queensland offices to share the fantastic news with MDQld State Manager Rick Carr, that an urgent request for funding assistance was to be met in its entirety by the AMAQ Foundation.

Rick Carr spoke of the effect a large contribution such as this will make: “AMAQ have been supporting vital MD Queensland projects for years and this particular project is certainly a very rewarding collaboration, as we will be assisting a long term member of our MD Qld community,who was not eligible for any other form of funding or government assistance. A new specially modified chair will enable greater access to the community and greater mobility and independence in and out of the home.” 

The AMAQ Foundation’s support of people living with Muscular Dystrophy in Queensland is greatly appreciated and we thank them for their continuous generosity.
