Duchenne is a severe muscle wasting condition, which is rare. Approx 2500 boys in the UK are living with the condition. There's currently no cure, however, the research that's been conducted over the past six years is extremely promising, but more money is needed to make further research possible, and to find the cure for Felix and all the other Children, living with the condition, as soon as possible.[/p][p]Your support means the absolute world to us. All money raised goes to Duchenne UK to fund further research into finding a cure.[/p][p]Visit our family fund Facebook page[/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]
