Gong marks collection week of the Princess Beatrix Muscle Foundation


Patient and ambassador of the Princess Beatrix Muscle Foundation, Anouska Ramaker, sounds the gong to mark the start of the annual collection week that takes place till 13 September.

This week the foundation has launched a new campaign ‘Strikze tegen spierziekten’. The campaign aims at highlighting the problems faced by patients with a muscle disease.  Do the test, try tying your shoelaces whilst wearing a pair of oven gloves. It’s almost impossible and that’s just one example of what it’s like to live with a muscle disease. Visit to order your oven gloves. The Princess Beatrix Muscle Foundation is the largest non-profit organization in the Netherlands dedicated to curing all neuromuscular diseases such as ALS, Duchenne, SMA and Pompe. Scientific research is the means to this end.
