CMDTR was established in 2021 to support diagnosis and treatment methods for Congenital Muscular Dystrophy Diseases. Our aim is to support national and international scientific studies on these diseases that are congenital or seen from a very young age, and to ensure that all patients reach diagnoses and treatments as soon as possible. In addition, it is to provide the necessary rehabilitation devices for patients and deliver them to patients in need. 

The foundation was established by Onur G. Cakir and Selin Cakir, whose daughter has CMD.
