My story

[p]Hi, I'm Amit Sodha, [/p][p]I've made the choice to support Duchenne UK and also to support this wonderful family... Manoj, Sejal and Shiv. [/p][p]Two families a week in the UK are told that their child has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD), a devastating muscle wasting disease that mainly affects boys.[/p][p]DMD is a desperately cruel disease. It's the most common genetic killer of children worldwide. Children will be totally paralysed by their teens and many won't live beyond their 20s. [/p][p]There is no treatment or cure. But thanks to recent breakthroughs, and with your help, we believe we can save them.[/p][p]Duchenne UK are an ambitious and highly focused charity, investing millions of pounds in research right now to bring treatments and a cure and to help this generation.[/p][p]Please help us to END DUCHENNE.[/p][p]More about Shiv and 'Smile With Shiv' [/p][p]In April 2014, at the age of 3, our fun loving, caring and ever so cheeky son Shiv with the most beautiful smile was diagnosed with a horrible condition called Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD).[/p][p]Shiv looks like any other boy his age on the surface; but his condition means that he is getting weaker by the day. In his early teens he will lose the ability walk, by his late teens he will start to suffer respiratory complications and by early twenties he could die from heart failure. This is typical for all Duchenne boys. Currently there is NO CURE.[/p][p]Coming to terms with Shiv’s condition has been extremely difficult for us and continues to test us on a daily basis; however, very quickly after entering the world of Duchenne and speaking to Duchenne organisations, scientists and other families impacted by this terrible condition, we now know that there is hope as researchers are working really hard to find a treatment and potential cure.[/p][p]We find ourselves in a race against time; we cannot sit back and wait for a treatment or cure to materialise, but need to act now to do what we can to speed up the process. For this reason we have set up the 'Smile with Shiv', and our goals are simple:[/p][p]Raise awareness of Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy[/p][p]Raise as much money as possible so it can be given to those working to save Shiv’s life and thousands of other children with this horrific condition[/p][p]Work with the Duchenne community to ensure we have access to potential treatments as early as possible[/p][p]We ask you to 'Smile with Shiv' and help us reach our goals. Please also visit our web site [url=http://www.smilewithshiv.org/]www.smilewithshiv.org[/url], follow us on Twitter: @svt_mands and Facebook: @smilewithshiv[/p][p]We are working with the Duchenne UK, a leading UK charity, to raise as much money for the Duchenne Research to help find an effective treatment and a cure for this horrible progressive condition - We are helping the World's Strongest Boys[/p][p]Thank you so much[/p][p]Manoj, Sejal and of course Shiv xx[/p][p]For more information about the condition and Smile with Shiv / Duchenne UK, please visit:[/p][p][url=http://www.smilewithshiv.org]www.smilewithshiv.org[/url][/p][p][url=http://www.duchenneuk.org]www.duchenneuk.org[/url][/p][p]Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities.
