BENEFITING: MICHAELS CAUSE INC
Duchenne patients, like our son, have a 30-year or less life expectancy. Dedicate your birthday to raise funds and help our children see age 30, and beyond. Even $30 helps fund new research that could become a cure!
We are asking you to dedicate your next birthday to help save our son, Michael, and the thousands of other children, who suffer from Duchenne. Instead of asking for gifts on your next birthday, ask your friends and family to donate $30 (or more) to help Duchenne patients see age 30, and beyond. 100% of funds donated go to Duchenne research in hopes of finding a cure.
At four-years-old, our son, Michael, was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, the leading, 100% fatal, genetic disorder worldwide, affecting 1 in 3,500 boys and 10,000 to 15,000 people in the U.S. This terrifying degenerative disease takes the lives of boys by age 30, by inhibiting dystrophin, a protein that is essential for muscle cells to survive.
Michael, who just recently celebrated his 9th birthday, has been force to learn mature lessons that go well beyond his times tables and ABCs. He’s learned that if he doesn’t do his stretches every evening, he’ll wake-up with terribly tight legs. He’s learned to avoid staircases in fear that they’ll damage his muscle cells. And he’s learned that the time he spends with his parents and siblings, Victoria Rose and Bobby, are what get him through these pains.
