Our friend Karl Kuhwald passed away last year after battling cancer. As well as being an unforgettable friend, Karl was a much loved and dedicated husband to Lisa, and a wonderful father to Oscar, Casper and twins Felix and Herbie.
In 2013, 3-year-old Felix was diagnosed with DMD. DMD is a devastating muscle-wasting condition that predominantly affects young boys. Most of whom will struggle with mobility by age 8 and become wheelchair
bound between the ages of 10 and 14.
DMD is a life limiting condition, and most boys will only live into their twenties, suffering from heart or respiratory failure. Medical advancements are being made all the time though and new treatments are on the horizon. Felix and other boys like him are still young enough to benefit from these new drugs and therapies, but time is running out!
With your help, we aim to raise £30,000 in Karl’s memory to aid research into DMD and find a cure that will help Felix and other young boys suffering with DMD.
Karl and his wife Lisa set up Team Felix as a feeder charity to raise funds for Duchenne UK. All funds raised by Team Felix will be donated directly to Duchenne UK. Duchenne UK is funding research into some potentially lifesaving treatments for Felix and other young boys suffering with DMD. Please visit www.duchenneuk.org for further details.
Duchenne UK has already raised significant funds but more is needed if a cure is to be found quickly
How we hope to raise £30,000 for Team Felix.
