There are so many incredible things happening, across Canada, that are bringing us closer to a world without Duchenne muscular dystrophy. We are excited to share them with you and we hope you will feel encouraged about the progress that is being made. One of our top priorities is to inform our Duchenne families and connect them with people who are going – or have gone – through the same things they are dealing with. Take advantage of this fantastic opportunity to chat with and learn from our organization’s biggest advocates – its Duchenne families!
