Our Cause Drives Us

The Race is on

Life brings different hardships to everyone but we have to remember that hardships are often turned into the greatest blessings.

Duchenne is the most common muscular dystrophy in children.

On  September 12th 2017 we received the diagnosis that 1 in every 3500  families with young boys receive each year. This news was the diagnosis  of a disease called Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD). Our journey has just begun, but Mason like other boys with DMD are in a race.

We hope to educate and support the disease until boys like Mason are left with hope.
Join the Fight
The reason we are involved with PPMD is that it is the only organization whose focus is entirely on Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.

It is a progressive disorder that causes muscles to become weaker over time until it affects the whole body and causes premature death. This is the diagnosis our son received at the age of four.

PPMD presents optimal care standards and provides free genetic testing for Duchenne. They invest deeply in treatments for this generation of Duchenne patients and in research that will benefit future generations.

We have great hope for the future of these children!
