We not only met our goal, we surpassed it!
We could not be more overwhelmed by the incredible response to our holiday campaign. In many ways, with a therapeutic pipeline full of promising treatments, it feels like the future of Duchenne therapy is here. Thanks to this community, we head into 2017 with incredible momentum—and the funds to move CRISPR/Cas9 research forward.
PPMD takes your investment in our mission very seriously. And we believe that all potential treatments need to be thoroughly explored before families make the decision to participate in clinical trials. That’s why your gift to help us explore promising therapies is so important.
There is no magic wand that will stop the progression of Duchenne. Believe me, I’ve looked! It will likely take a combination of therapies and, with the potential to permanently alter DNA, CRISPR/Cas9 could be an important part of the solution.
Thanks to your support, we will find out just what CRISPR/Cas9 can do—and will continue to invest in new, innovative research until we end Duchenne for every person, for every family.
I hope you and your family had a wonderful holiday season and I wish you nothing but happiness and blessings in the New Year! From all of us at PPMD, thank you for joining us in the fight to end Duchenne.
P.S. It’s not too late to make your gift to PPMD’s holiday campaign! We have a busy year planned and can use your continued support as we identify and invest in more innovative therapies like CRISPR/Cas9.
