This month is our month. As a community, September has come to mean the start of the school year, vacations are over, sleeves are rolled up, and the nitty gritty work of ending Duchenne kicks into high gear. And September means Coach To Cure MD. I am not a football expert, but I follow the sport and I was struck by how their terms and our terms sometimes parallel each other.

Fighting Duchenne takes team work. It takes all of us working together to push research and care forward. When you make a donation, when you text a $5 gift, when you host a tailgate party, when you tell your family’s story to your local media, you help us move closer to the End Zone. With you on our team and on the field, we will end Duchenne.
Now is the time to get off the sidelines and get in the game.
