We are the UK's leading Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) charity. We're connecting scientists, industry, the NHS and families to accelerate research and bring the best care and treatments to everyone affected by DMD.
We need to go further than anyone has before to find effective treatments. This means setting our ambitions high and overcoming every barrier in our way.
We’re going to do it faster, because this generation of people living with DMD can’t wait.
The only way we can achieve this is together. We create a network of mutual support for families. We collaborate with scientists and the pharmaceutical industry, bringing them together to share knowledge. And we work with health services so that patients get the care they need.
Give the gift of hope this Christmas.
By fundraising or making a donation this Duchenneber, you can help fund life-changing research into Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) and give people living with DMD and their families the most precious gift of all, hope.
We are holding a new conference for the DMD community in London from 1-2 March 2024.
Called New Horizons, the conference is for parents, family members and caregivers, and those working to help people with DMD.
