Becker United was originally a group setup by and for people with Becker Muscular Dystrophy .
- To provide support to people with BMD, their Families and Carers of those affected by Becker Muscular Dystrophy.
- To provide information
- To provide a means to talk to others with BMD
In October 2015 A week was designated as Becker Muscular Dystrophy Awareness Week A week designed to spread awareness of Becker Muscular Dystrophy .The page should still be available via this LINK. .
We attended many Becker Related event in the UK including Belfast,Liverpool ,Milton Keynes, Brentford speaking with others and building up a large amount of members.
Becker United now continues to operate but as a Website with links to information and contains Members stories of living life with BMD. We originally list members with their Emails but with the advent of scam emails we removed this to protect members.
Facebook provides a means to speak to others with BMD in a more efficient way than the older contact lists and in a way totally separate from Becker United

I think it important to maintain what strength you already have ,excercise in moderation and physiotherapy are of great benefit. So here’s a plug for where I get my Physiotherapy. This a place where I can go and talk to others with Becker Muscular Dystrophy receiving treatment as well as myself.
The Neuromuscular Centre situated in Winsford Cheshire is for everyone within the region directly or indirectly affected by Muscular Dystrophy, there is a full physiotherapy service available by appointment. They have a team of Chartered Physiotherapists who specialise in the management of neuromuscular conditions.
In this updated Becker United site I have not added the members names and Emails list , the support this offered is now much better served by the Facebook groups above..
