You have shared with us that finding better treatments and ultimately a cure for MSUD is a high priority for you and our Board of Directors has made this a key goal. The MSUD Family Support Group is currently funding several research projects and we are proactively looking for researchers interested in developing new treatments or finding a cure for MSUD. Significant funding is necessary if we are to accomplish this goal.

Many of you have helped us in the past by donating money or fundraising to support various projects and we are very grateful for your previous support.

We are reaching out to you again for assistance.
Here is how you can help:
  1. Send a donation to the MSUD Family Support Group. Make check payable to MSUD Family Support Group and mail it to:

    Dave Bulcher, MSUD Treasurer
    9517 Big Bear Avenue
    Powell, Ohio 43065

    or via credit card through PayPal below.

    Indicate if you would like your contribution to go toward the General Fund or the Research Fund.
  2. Reach out to your family and friends and encourage them to donate to the MSUD Family Support Group. Personalized letters are the most effective tool. You may want to include a picture of the individual affected by MSUD. See the sample letter included in this mailing to model your letter after if desired.

Thanks for your help in improving the lives of those with MSUD and working towards a cure.
