Even More to Be Thankful For This Thanksgiving
When Thanksgiving comes around each year, I’m reminded of how much we actually have to be thankful for. As a Duchenne parent, I am thankful every day for the moments I get to spend with my son Hawken. On Thanksgiving, I am thankful for all those who continue to fight alongside us for a cure so that more families can have more precious moments with their sons.
This year, I feel I have even more to be thankful for. I am surrounded by the CureDuchenne community who continues to support and advocate for our boys. I am thankful for the progress we have made in treatments for our boys to help halt the progress of this fatal disease.
I am filled with gratitude for our donors and event sponsors. Your support of our efforts is humbling and inspires us to keep searching for a cure. Your generous support has allowed us to fund critical research.
As we continue to tackle every aspect of Duchenne, I am thankful that CureDuchenne is able to lead the way on this long journey towards finding a cure. By supporting research like Dr. Olson’s CRISPR/Cas9 project, there is even greater hope.
This Thanksgiving, I hope you enjoy every moment with your families and friends and know that CureDuchenne is thankful for all of your roles in our battle against Duchenne.
From my family to yours, we wish you a peaceful and joyful Thanksgiving!
With warm wishes,
