We continue to rely on membership, donations and fundraising to allow us to fulfil our aims of spreading awareness of dystonia Australia wide, providing up-to-date information on dystonia and supporting dystonia seminars. We hope to be able to initiate research into dystonia in time to come.
DNA was funded by a transfer of $8,000 from the Australian Spasmodic Torticollis Association, an unincorporated association that was no longer in operation. We thank the past members of ASTA for their generosity. This money and two important donations have allowed DNA to progress to this stage.
