Team Joseph fights for all children and young adults battling Duchenne muscular dystrophy. It is our mission to fund research to find a cure, and to support families with immediate needs related to caring for a child with Duchenne.

We are committed to creating a world without Duchenne, and to ensure that every child with Duchenne receives the care, medical equipment, and support they need to live a long, full life, regardless of their financial situation.

When our namesake, Joseph, was diagnosed 13 years ago, there were only a handful of potential treatments in clinical trial. Today, there are dozens of clinical trials underway and five treatments that have been approved by the FDA.  

When you donate to Team Joseph, you are funding the research that makes these breakthroughs possible – creating hope for tomorrow. And you are assisting families right now with urgent needs – giving help today.

Caring for a child with Duchenne can be overwhelming. The disease is progressive, which means the needs are constantly changing and growing. We are here to give you direct assistance, as well as strength, support and community so you can take the best care of your child. Whether it’s help purchasing a ramp, the expense of traveling to a Duchenne clinic for care, a wheelchair, an insurance battle, guidance, mentoring, or searching for resources to help with daily or emergency needs, we’re here to help. You are not in this alone.
