As a community, we need to continue our efforts to find a cure for every single person impacted by Duchenne.
That means funding research that treats all aspects of the disease. That includes anti-inflammatory and anti-fibrosis therapies, gene therapy and gene editing; and cardiac therapies that address the leading cause of death for Duchenne. As stewards of the Duchenne research, we need to be diligent in understanding and pursuing the right science that will have the greatest chance of leading to success.
For the Duchenne community who has supported our journey with hope and dollars, we still need your commitment to help the 87% of patients without an approved treatment. Our hearts are filled with gratitude for your support, and we look forward to your desire to help the Duchenne community reach the ultimate goal – a cure. Join us at www.IAmThe87percent.org to show your support.
