Major Bequest to MDA


We are extremely grateful to the Hamer family who have been long-time supporters of MDA. The late Kevin Hamer’s nieces: Georgina, Bethany and Caitlyn, came in to MDA HQ to present a bequest of $200K which will help MDA deliver its programs, services and fund research. MDA Executive Director, Boris M Struk accepted the very generous donation on behalf of the MDA.

Struk said, “We are extremely grateful to the Hamer family who have been long supporters of MDA. Kevin’s late brother Ian was one of those who MDA had been pleased to be able to assist during his lifetime. We hope that a timely solution will be found and this significant and thoughtful gift provided by The Estate of Kevin Hamer has the capacity to make a difference and for this, the MDA and MD Community are deeply moved.”

An additional bequest of $200K was gifted to the Royal Children’s Hospital to support further research into Muscular Dystrophy.
