Great News: Match extended by PPMD board!

I have some exciting news: Your response to Sean and Mindy Rice’s generous matching gift of $200,000 has been incredibly inspiring to the Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy board. You’ve shown us that PPMD’s Gene Therapy Initiative matters to you, and we want to keep up the momentum.

So the Board has added $50,000 to the match. That means we have an incredible opportunity to raise $500,000 by the end of the year for revolutionary gene therapy research. Will you donate now to help us meet that goal?

Gene therapy technology is one of the most exciting research developments to date, and PPMD has already invested in a diversity of approaches like microdystrophin and CRISPR, and we are exploring newer therapies like GALGT2 and Dup2. Your support today pushes the limits of what’s possible with gene therapy treatment of Duchenne. Have your gift matched now to keep the momentum going.

A Duchenne diagnosis today isn’t the same as it was ten or even five years ago. There’s better treatment, greater investment in research, and more hope—and it’s all because of the incredible commitment of everyone in the PPMD community.

I’m asking for your commitment once more, as we close out this whirlwind year. PPMD supporters have really stepped up these past few weeks to help us expand our Gene Therapy Initiative. Your collective generosity and the incredible potential of these therapies are what inspired us to raise the bar even higher and increase the match.

There are only five days to go, and this is our biggest goal ever, but I know we can count on you. Donate now to take us closer to raising $500,000—and closer to a future without Duchenne.

Thank you for joining the fight and supporting PPMD.

John Killian
PPMD Board Chairman

P.S. There’s so much potential in gene therapy—it was recently approved to treat leukemia— and exploring it to the fullest extent possible is critical to PPMD’s mission. Now is one of the best times to support this work, since every dollar you give goes twice as far. Please help us raise $500,000 by December 31st.
