About Tiff’s Place
Tiff’s Place was created by Melissa Simpson to honor her daughter, Tiffany Dawn Sanders, and to create awareness about Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD), as well as other rare neuromuscular disorders. Currently there is no treatment for females with DMD, and only limited treatment for males.
Tiff’s Place was inspired in 2013 by the joy Tiffany felt at being able to travel to Dublin, Ireland, and stay at a vacation facility called Home From Home, which was fully equipped to safely support those who are differently abled. Upon their return, Melissa and Tiffany were surprised to learn that there were no facilities in the United States equal to Home From Home.
Tiffany passed in 2017, but her desire to help others with similar conditions is now the passion of her mother, who has worked tirelessly to develop Tiff’s Place in her daughter’s name. In 2020, Melissa was so pleased to announce the opening of Tiff’s Place to those with neuromuscular disorders in need of a destination designed specifically for them.
