John and Jesse Davidson founded Jesse’s Journey in 1995 to provide leadership in research, advocacy and support in the fight to defeat Duchenne muscular dystrophy. We’ve united families, raised awareness, and funded $16 million in research projects around the world.

Their vision remains our foundation: a future without Duchenne. But now is the time to broaden our reach, engage and support more families across Canada, fund more research, and educate our nation’s leaders to gain the Federal support needed to make even greater progress towards our ultimate goal: to defeat Duchenne muscular dystrophy.

Now is the time for all Canadians to join the fight to defeat Duchenne.

Join us as Jesse’s Journey becomes Defeat Duchenne Canada.

Meet Errict

Errict was first diagnosed with Duchenne muscular dystrophy when he was eight years old. Now 22 years old, Errict has received his advanced diploma in Advanced Biotechnology, and he’s always learning new skills.

Duchenne muscular dystrophy is an extremely complex disease with a broad range of progressive symptoms. This section is intended to explain the what, why and how behind the most common form of muscular dystrophy diagnosed in children.

In this section, you’ll find important information about how to navigate life with Duchenne and access the right supports for your child now and in the future. Defeat Duchenne Canada is here to help you and your family every step of the way.

Defeat Duchenne Canada relies on the support of individuals and businesses from coast to coast to help make life better for boys and young men living with Duchenne muscular dystrophy, and ultimately, find a cure for this life-limiting disease.
