When our son, Jonathan, was diagnosed with Duchenne, we didn’t know where our family would find the strength to fight. But the PPMD community has always shown us that we are never alone in our fight to end Duchenne.
Because of PPMD’s profound commitment to Jonathan, and to every person with Duchenne, Jonathan is living a wonderful life, one with happiness, excitement, and optimism.
We believe in PPMD’s mission to end Duchenne so much that we’re matching every donation through the end of the year until PPMD raises $400,000 to expand their Gene Therapy Initiative, exploring some of the most promising areas of research to date. Donate now to help us get there.
As parents, there’s nothing worse than the feeling of powerlessness—of realizing you cannot always protect your child. It’s a feeling that every family with Duchenne knows all too well. But, as a family, we’ve found courage and strength and persistence that we never knew we had.
Our family has never felt alone in this experience thanks to you. And if we keep pushing together, we have no doubt that we will one day win this fight. PPMD’s innovative work in gene therapy, including investments in microdystrophin, CRISPR, and GALGT2, gives our family tremendous hope that we’ll all see that day sooner than we had ever hoped possible even a few short years ago.
But it will take each of us joining the fight to get there. Donate today, and we’ll match your gift. Help us raise the $400,000 we need to build on our recent successes in gene therapy and give all people with Duchenne fuller, longer lives.
Thank you for your support and warm wishes this holiday season from our family to yours.
