Hello, my name is Peter D Glick and I live in Kentucky. I was diagnosed in the early 1980's with ALS. My mother passed away in 1982 from complications of ALS. My desease progressed very slowly and in 1997 I was rediagnosed with SBMA or Kennedy's Disease. My Neurologist had a single page of information on the Disease. Thanks to the KDA website and linked information sites I found many pages of information. At the KDA Conferences, starting in 2001, I gained additional information and support. Several years ago I participated in a fund raising effort and feel proud that the resulting money collected helped to fund more research directed by the KDA. KDA is an excellent group of caring and dedicated members that are always there if more support and hope is needed.

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