Michael's Cause is a non-profit organization raising awareness of Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, the leading fatal genetic childhood disease that affects 1 in 3500 boys worldwide. We raise funds to support new research to find a cure and have directed $1.4 million towards the best medical and scientific research since we were founded in 2011.
Our son, Michael, was diagnosed with Duchenne in November 2010. Since this devastating diagnosis we have taken Michael to some of the best medical institutions in the country and his treatment is now with Johns Hopkins in Baltimore.
Our mission is to raise awareness of Duchenne and direct funding for research by building a strong foundation for future treatments and a possible cure for the thousands of children who suffer from this disease.
Your support means everything and has the potential to save our son's life and the other boys affected with this disease!
