My story

[p]As a parent, all you can hope for is a happy and healthy life for your child as possible. We are no different.[/p][p]Our lives changed in a heartbeat when our son, Jack, was diagnosed with Duchenne muscular dystrophy in December 2015. DMD is a rare disease affecting 1 in 3,500 boys which results in muscle wastage and premature death.[/p][p]There are a number of medical developments underway to help to delay symptoms and some which could help to cure this disease but the clock is ticking![/p][p]We are raising money for Jack to have the best life and care possible and also to put to research and clinical trials, both new and current, that will make a significant difference sooner rather than later to all boys like Jack who are affected by this cruel disease.[/p][p][br][/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]Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to Duchenne UK. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.[/p]
