Making A Dent In Duchenne [Infographic]

We can’t make a difference if we’re not aware of the problem. We’ve all heard of Muscular Dystrophy, even if it hasn’t touched the life of a loved one we personally hold dear. Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy is the most common, as well as, the most aggressive form of Muscular Dystrophy. It occurs almost exclusively in boys, and its diagnosis comes about when a child is around two years old. Duchenne causes progressive weakening of muscle tissues and is 100% fatal. These boys are given a death sentence before they have barely begun to live.

What if I were to tell you the number one genetic killer of children, Duchenne, has a promising treatment, but it is out of the reach of these children and their parents? The treatment slows Duchenne’s progress and clinical trials show that 83% of young boys who are suffering could live longer lives if they have access to this drug.

Take a deeper look at what can be done to help these children live long enough to become young men in this infographic.
