OUR NEED

Last year Sarepta received the first FDA approval of a treatment for Duchenne muscular dystrophy. It’s because of amazing guests and sponsors like yourselves that we are able to accelerate drug development to help save the lives of those with Duchenne. This year we are raising money to fund a promising gene editing research project by Dr. Eric Olson using CRISPR/Cas-9 technology that has the potential to treat 80% of the Duchenne population. Join us for Blingo 2017 and help us fund this research that could be transformational for Duchenne patients.

DUCHENNE MUSCULAR DYSTROPHY

Duchenne is a fatal genetic disease that causes muscle degeneration that impacts 1 in every 3,500 boys. Boys are usually diagnosed by age 5, lose their ability to walk by by 12 and most don’t survive their mid-20s. The disorder knows no ethnic or social boundaries. Research funded by CureDuchenne is helping to improve and save the lives of those with Duchenne.

CURE DUCHENNE

CureDuchenne is a national nonprofit that raises awareness and funds research for Duchenne muscular dystrophy treatment.  We strive to find a cure for Duchenne muscular dystrophy.

Our goal is to halt the progress of the disease by bringing life-saving drugs to help this generation of Duchenne boys. CureDuchenne has funded nine projects that have advanced into human clinical trials. CureDuchenne will continue to fund impactful research until there is a cure. Today, the world’s leading scientists are working with CureDuchenne to help determine the most viable research projects and to accelerate the clinical trial process.

The organization was founded by Debra and Paul Miller after their son was diagnosed with Duchenne. At the time, there was not an organization focused exclusively on Duchenne muscular dystrophy treatments.
