Fighting for a cure for duchenne muscular dystrophy
Action Duchenne is the only UK charity fighting for a cure for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.
Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy is a devastating muscle wasting disease that leads to paralysis and early death.
Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy is caused by variations in the X chromosome, which is why it almost exclusively affects boys.
Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy can occur completely unexpectedly in normal families just like yours. There are a whole generation of boys living and dying with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy in this country.
In recent years there has been research to suggest that young boys with Duchenne are also at risk of related learning and behaviour problems.
There is currently no cure or active treatment but there is HOPE. Hope lies in research and medical science. You can help us make this hope a reality. By showing your support progress towards this cure can and will become an exciting reality.
