About Our Foundation

Finding the Cure for DM Foundation, Inc. is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization made up of representatives who in one way or another have been affected by Degenerative Myelopathy (DM), also known as Chronic Degenerative Radiculomyelopathy (CDRM), and who are passionate about helping to find the Cure.  

Our goal is to increase awareness, educate the public about this dreadful disease, and to help fund continuing research, that looks for additional causes, better treatments and ultimately, to finding a cure. 

We are also here to support YOU, as you share this battle with your canine companion.

The Finding the Cure for DM Foundation, Inc. is an organization that consists entirely of volunteers
