Lisa Kuhwald is Duchenne UK’s Advocacy Support Officer - this is a voluntary role.
Lisa is mum to 4 boys, Oscar, Casper, Felix and Herbie (Felix and his twin Herbie pictured). They live in Altrincham near Manchester.
She studied Chemistry at the University of Hull and worked as a teacher and in the pharmaceutical industry. Lisa now runs the family property business in Manchester, founded by her husband Karl.
They set up Team Felix in 2013, after their son Felix, then 2, was diagnosed with Duchenne. The goal is to raise as much money as possible, and as quickly as possible, to fund research into treatments to end Duchenne.
