"I am Archie, I am 6 years old and have Duchenne. Duchenne makes my muscles work differently from other people's and I get more tired. My favourite things to do are swimming and pretending to be a superhero, my favourite is Captain America. My Mummy and Daddy say I am already a superhero in their eyes, but I just like to be normal and try to be the same as everyone else. We fundraise for Duchenne UK as they work so hard to find a cure for Duchenne and help my muscles, my biggest hope is to always be able to run beside my best friend and brother Freddie".
