The Colorado Fund for Muscular Dystrophy (CFMD) was established in 2012 by friends and family of Aileen Colorado, who passed away from complications of pneumonia in 2011. Born with congenital muscular dystrophy, Aileen never let her disability stop her from living a fulfilling life and a career helping people with disabilities.
In memory of Aileen, CFMD made it their mission to increase the quality of life of individuals living with muscular dystrophy or a neuromuscular disorder. CFMD offers grants to individuals who are in need of financial assistance.
