Duchenne is a progressive muscle wasting disease. It effects 1 in every 3500 boys. Currently there are about 300,000 boys effected worldwide...very small amount of boys considering the earths population.
We currently have Jamesy in a study, that if it works, it will prevent him from being in a wheel chair before his 12th birthday. He's not alone. We would love to get other boys who are currently walking, continue to walk until we can find a cure.
In the last 4 months as many boys past due to heart complications, all before their 15th birthday. They need our help....I know we can change the trajectory of this disease with your help.
