More than ever before, there is HOPE to find the treatment to end Duchenne muscular dystrophy, a progressive genetic disorder that affects thousands of children all over the world. The cure is just around the corner, but financial support is needed to accelerate medical research. This is the moment to TAKE ACTION.
History of the Project:
This project was born on Thanksgiving Day. While a family was enjoying their blessings,they remembered that not everyone was as lucky as they were. Health, which most people take for granted, was taking away the happiness of a dear friend. Even worse, it was progressively deteriorating the body of her little son, Alex, who at the age of 5 was diagnosed with DUCHENNE MUSCULAR DYSTROPHY (DMD).
The creators of this project are Jose Lorenzo Moya and Alejandra Diaz-Ruiz Labrit, friends of Lianette Gonzalez, Alex’s mother. They had the beautiful idea of organizing an art exhibition with artists and DMD children. Each participating child would do a spontaneous drawing. Then, each artist would sponsor a drawing, take it as an inspiration, supplement it, and make it a true work of art.
The proceeds of the sales would be donated to Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy (PPMD),leaders in the fight to end Duchenne.
