Our mission is to improve the lives of those living with muscular dystrophy.

HOW WE BEGAN AS A PATIENT LED ORGANIZATION

Welcome to The Speak Foundation (TSF). We are the first patient led organization for muscular dystrophy.  You can also watch the video below of Founder and Director, Kathryn Bryant, sharing about the original vision for TSF. This foundation began as a wish when Pantene sponsored the “Beautiful Wishes” campaign. Kathryn’s wish became reality to help children, teens, and adults with disabilities! TSF is now dedicated to helping people of all ages cope with and overcome the challenges of living with a neuromuscular disease (NMD).
