This #GivingTuesday, 11/28, cofounders of LAMN, Shane, Hannah, and Sarah, will be hosting a live virtual event through a fun, interactive discussion about disability, advocacy, and life. The purpose of this event is to enjoy time with our followers and supporters, and to talk about some of the ways we all can work together to make this world a more accepting and accessible place for people of ALL abilities. Proceeds from ticket sales and sponsorships benefit LAMN’s NEW Laughing at My Nightmare Academic Scholarship Program launching in 2024!
Individuals with muscular dystrophy face significant financial barriers to achieving independence and quality of life. These barriers include the high cost of essential equipment and assistive technology, as well as the difficulty finding employment and earning a living wage.
This new program aims to address these barriers by providing comprehensive college scholarships to individuals living with MD. This new Academic Scholarship is an annual scholarship program that provides full financial support to one to two individuals with muscular dystrophy who are pursuing an undergraduate or graduate degree at a public university within their state of residence. The scholarship covers the full cost of tuition, fees, and course materials.
