John and Jesse Davidson founded Jesse’s Journey in 1995 to lead research, advocacy and support in the fight to defeat Duchenne muscular dystrophy. Since then, 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. In 2022, we became Defeat Duchenne Canada: the country’s only national charity dedicated to curing this disorder and dramatically improving the lives of boys and families who have to cope with its debilitating symptoms. Learn more about our mission and join us in changing the outcome of this life-limiting disease.
