Duchenne is a devastating muscle disease.

It’s the most common and severe form of muscular dystrophy. Those affected with Duchenne lose their ability to walk, feed themselves, breathe independently and succumb to heart failure. But there’s hope through new pharmacological and gene-based therapies. You can help make a difference.
