We want you on our team!
Three years ago, our son, Archer (7), was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD). Since that day we sought out world class clinicians and researchers who are committed to changing the outcome. Through the support of organizations like MDA, PPMD and Charley’s Fund, 2018 provided the first optimistic look at what the future could be for Archer and thousands of boys just like him. As optimistic and hopeful as 2018 has been we're even MORE excited about 2019.
In 2018 the initial DMD gene therapy trials that we noted last year have begun to be enrolled, with some exciting early results. There is still a lot to be learned but in the words of a well-placed pharmaceutical executive, we’re “hoping the future is already here and indeed brighter and full of hope.”
The team photo is Archer as he leaped off our swim platform for the first time this summer, we’re optimistic that we will see many more such leaps in 2019.
Please Join MDA Team Momentum today and make every mile during your training and race bring strength, independence and life to kids and adults with muscular dystrophy, ALS and related muscle-debilitating diseases.
We’re looking for runners and walkers who are up for taking on a challenge with us.
