Fashion designers become donators

    • Lieve Van Gorp & Greet Ruelens

      At the turn of the century, fashion designer Lieve Van Gorp and art director Greet Ruelens were managing a successful fashion label out of their hometown Antwerp (Belgium) and Paris (France).

      When Greet was told that she had dystonia, after a 4-year long search for a diagnosis, the designer duo established the Foundation for Dystonia Research (FDR) in 2009.

  • The aim of the Foundation is to promote scientific research into dystonia.

    ‘After all, fundamental research is the starting point in our endeavor to find a better treatment and hopefully a cure for this disease’, says Greet Ruelens, who is, years after the diagnosis, still seeking for an optimal treatment to improve her quality of life.
