The MdDS Balance Disorder Foundation (MdDS Foundation) is a non-profit, rare disorder organization founded in 2003. Its mission is to promote awareness, seek a cure, and assist patients who have been affected by Mal de Debarquement Syndrome (MdDS). MdDS is characterized by a persistent sense of motion, which may cause loss of balance, most commonly brought on by a cruise or other motion experience. Funds acquired by the organization will be used to inform medical professionals, as well as the public, and support research toward treatments and a cure for this little-understood disorder.
