What is Cure Duchenne?
Well I honestly had not heard of it before this year. I was shocked to find out that it is the MOST COMMON muscle disorder for kids. One in every 3,500 males born is afflicted with the disease. Nearly 20,000 boys are living with the disease in the United States alone, and many will not survive their teenage years. The disorder knows no ethnic or social boundaries.And there is NO CURE! How can this be so common and yet so few know about it?
That is horrible and we must change this!
