A 3-part virtual education series to inform and re-envision this unique journey

The Duchenne journey is a realignment of the life we imagined. Individuals with Duchenne will live through many different stages, each requiring emotional, physical, and social adjustments. For parents and individuals living with Duchenne, not knowing what to expect and prepare for is daunting.

This CureDuchenne Cares educational series hopes to fill the unknown with knowledge and support so we can embrace this reality and re-envision our future.

CureDuchenne Cares is an interactive education and outreach program designed to provide the community with information, resources and best practices for managing the challenges of Duchenne to help improve overall quality of life.
