Dealing for Duchenne – San Antonio is a must-attend charity event benefiting CureDuchenne. CureDuchenne is a national nonprofit that raises awareness and funds research to find a cure for Duchenne muscular dystrophy. Duchenne is the most devastating and lethal muscular disease in children. One in every 3,500 boys will be diagnosed with Duchenne. Those with Duchenne are usually diagnosed by the age of 5, lose their ability to walk by 12 and most don’t survive their mid-20s.

Duchenne knows no ethnic or social boundaries.

JOSHUA’S STORY

In 2013, our oldest son, Joshua, was diagnosed with Duchenne muscular dystrophy.  He was 5 years old at the time and we were in complete shock with the diagnosis. We did not know what Duchenne was or what the prognosis would be, but we quickly learned of the fatal path of the disease.  We found that this disease is the most common, but also the most aggressive form of muscular dystrophy.  Boys are usually diagnosed around 5 years of age, lose the ability to walk by their mid-teens and that most boys with Duchenne don’t survive past their mid-20’s.

It was hard to comprehend why our loving, caring and big-hearted son would be thrust onto this fatal path.  It was a very difficult time for us as we dealt with accepting that our son would not be like other children. He wouldn’t be able to jump, run, skip or play tag. But most of all, we feared he would lose his life to this disease.

As we went through emotional swings on how to move forward with the diagnosis, we quickly realized that we had to do something to try and change the course of this disease.  While we do not have the background in medicine or science, we knew that there were other avenues for us to make a difference for Joshua and all boys battling Duchenne.  With our faith and the support of our family and friends, we set out on a new journey.  We learned more about the Duchenne community and all the progress that had already been made.  In this, we found CureDuchenne, a national non-profit that has been leading the effort in finding a cure for Duchenne.

CureDuchenne has been working on accelerating potential life-saving therapies for all boys with Duchenne for more than  10 years.  Today, we focus our efforts on helping raise awareness and funding to support the research and development of therapies and ensuring there is a path to bring these therapies to market.  We are committed to doing all we can so that this generation of boys will see the treatments that will change the trajectory of their lives.

Joshua is now a 4th grader and he loves to play on his iPad, swim, and build Legos. He is a courageous, caring and adventurous boy that is a big brother to our two younger sons, Jacob and Jeremy. Joshua and all boys with Duchenne  are in a race against time, and we will do all we can to help them. Please join us at the 2nd Annual Dealing for Duchenne event on October 21 and help us in this fight to help save the lives of all those with Duchenne. Together, we can CureDuchenne.

Sincerely,

Maribel & Ramiro Munoz

The Research

The proceeds of the night will fund gene editing research that could be transformational for Duchenne patients.  It would be a one-time treatment using CRISPR/Cas9 technology that would help correct a majority of the genetic mutations in Duchenne.
