“We didn’t know anything about Duchenne and felt isolated that there was no one we could turn to… CureDuchenne has hosted several workshops that have been invaluable in providing knowledge on the care, treatment and future of our son, but, even more importantly, has enabled us to spend time with other Duchenne families…”

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, breath independently and succumb to heart failure. But there’s hope through new pharmacological and gene-based therapies. You can help make a difference.
