This week on Helping Hand, the Muscular Dystrophy Association of Hawaii Executive Director Jade Guess speaks with HPR All Things Considered Host Dave Lawrence. The MDA of Hawaii are dedicated to curing muscular dystrophy, ALS and related neuromuscular diseases, and provides health care, advocacy and education. There are lots of ways we can support their mission, including the October 14th MDA Muscle Walk of Hawai‘i in Kapolei, and numerous other volunteer and donation opportunities.

Helping Hand is a weekly feature on HPR1 stations statewide and then archived online here. Each Friday afternoon, Helping Hand puts the spotlight organizations, events and topics that offer assistance to the disabled and other folks among the most vulnerable.
