James Anthony Raffone is 6 years old. He was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy on September 13, 2013. Duchenne is a devastating muscle disease. Most boys who have it do not survive beyond their mid-twenties and those that do are wheelchair bound by age 12. Duchenne affects about 300,000 boys worldwide; 20,000 kids in the US. There is no cure. Our Mission is to support JAR of Hope and bring awareness and raising funds directed to find a cure and provide funding for treatment and medical needs. Our HOPE is to be able to end Duchenne.
