Isaac Banks

Isaac Banks has many obstacles that could stop him, but muscular dystrophy isn’t one of them. At age 8, Isaac was misdiagnosed as having Duchenne muscular dystrophy by a family doctor. When he was 21, doctors noticed Isaac’s diagnosis wasn’t progressing as expected. After contacting MDA, he was tested and the results revealed that he was actually living with limb girdle muscular dystrophy.

Isaac has since found a successful career in corporate America. He is a talented public speaker and has designed a comprehensive Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion program, as well as a Servant Leadership for Management program. Over the years, Isaac participated in various programs provided by MDA, including Summer Camp and speaks about the profound ways that Summer camp set him up for success in life and molded him into the deeply fulfilled person he is today, spending as much time as he can giving back.
