Real progress toward a cure is being made but we urgently need your support. Join the CureDuchenne Crusaders team and play a part in helping us raise awareness and fund promising research so we can cure Duchenne now.”
Duchenne is a devastating muscle disease that impacts 1 in 3,500 boys. Boys are usually diagnosed by the age of 5, in a wheelchair by 12 and most don’t survive their mid-20s.
