My story

[p]In August 2017 our world was ripped apart when our little boy Archie was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD). This devastating, life limiting disease has no treatment or cure and huge implications for our darling son. [/p][p]DMD is the most common fatal genetic disease diagnosed in childhood, children born with it will be in a wheelchair by 12, paralysed by their teens and have a life expectancy of 30.[/p][p]When we first found out this news the world as we knew it came to an end, the hopes for our family came crashing down and the dreams we had were replaced instead with a void of desolation, despair and deep, deep pain. We thought we would never be able to live, let alone find joy or enjoyment in life itself, however as time has gone on we know that we cannot let this terrible disease destroy us. We are going to fight Duchenne every step of the way and part of that fight is raising money for much needed research into ending it.[/p][p]Duchenne UK is a lean, ambitious and highly focused charity with a clear vision: to fund and accelerate treatments and a cure for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, and to beat this disease in a decade – to End Duchenne in Ten. Duchenne UK is run by parents, committed to saving this generation of boys with DMD. For more information please visit [url=http://www.duchenneuk.org/duchenne-uk-charity-film]www.duchenneuk.org/duchenne-uk-charity-film[/url] [/p][p]Now for the challenge, Archie’s incredible Aunties, Libs and Charlie, and Ewan Mitchell are cycling to Paris in June for Duchenne UK. They will cycle 300km in 24 hours as part of a 150 strong team. All money raised will go directly to medical research and every penny raised is a step closer for Archie and other children like him to live the lives they deserve free from the shackles of Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.[/p]
