funding the research that fuels our hope

We believe that collaboration is the key to developing treatments or a cure for Duchenne. We believe in working with scientists and clinicians, as well small bio-tech firms and large pharmaceutical companies.
We believe in building strong relationships with other Duchenne non-profits to find and fund research projects that can make a difference. We believe in using our voice to tell our story.

Our commitment is paying off


We have partnered with our friends at Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy to fund a $1 million project at the University of Florida that will explore the development of therapies to address dilated heart failure in Duchenne muscular dystrophy.


We have provided funding for two projects that are in clinical trial, including a gene therapy trial with positive initial results.

you can help us get closer to a cure

Even though we are closer today than ever before to treatments for all Duchenne patients, we still have work to do. We are proud but not satisfied. We cannot stop until there is a treatment for every single boy or young man with Duchenne.  

Your support will help accelerate research so that a generation of boys can win their battle against Duchenne and have the chance to grow up and live out their dreams.

We believe we can defeat Duchenne badge
