My story

[p]Jack is my only son. He is a lively, happy, mischievous 6 year old. On April 21st 2016 aged just 4, he was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy and our world fell apart, we are all still trying to come to terms with what this means for Jack’s future.[/p][p]Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy is one of the most common severe muscle wasting diseases which mainly affects boys. The majority of children lose the ability to walk around 8-12 years, then follows further muscle loss, resulting in being unable to move their arms with breathing and heart also being affected. Duchenne is life-limiting. There is NO cure. [/p][p]Jack loves Minecraft, Spiderman and teasing his three older sisters, they find him rather annoying at times but with one of his famous smiles he is quickly forgiven. Thankfully Jack is still walking well but uses a wheelchair for longer distances, we don’t know how long this will last so we try to spend time making as many memories as possible.[/p][p]We want to raise as much money as possible for the trials, treatments and hopefully one day a cure for all affected by this devastating disease. So, if you could donate through this page or join us in some fundraising, we would be eternally grateful![/p][p]Thank you.[/p][p]Claire, Amber, Ellie, Olivia and Jack xx[/p]
