With 2013 just underway, your Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy family is beyond grateful for your continued support of our work. We met the full $50,000 match and reached our ambitious goal of $300,000, and we're thrilled with the hope that this accomplishment brings—hope that an end to Duchenne is more possible than ever. We will fund projects that will provide important outcome measures for non-ambulatory as well as very young persons with Duchenne, setting the stage for the significant number of clinical trials coming forward. And once again, you have made it possible.
Thank you, as always, for your support. Plus, I want to give a special thank you to the Wagner family for their extremely generous matching gift. It inspired more giving and enabled us to achieve our goal that much quicker.
As the decorations are put away, the recipes are filed, and the remaining pine needles are finally vacuumed up, I say goodbye to a bittersweet holiday season. I love the holidays, though the tender memories of holidays with Chris and Patrick remain. But, in all honesty, this time of year reaffirms my faith in humanity. And more specifically, it reminds me of how blessed we all are to have this incredible community.
When it was time to fund these critical projects, we came to you asking for your help. And you gave it. Time after time, we ask you to rally around our efforts in Washington, and you join us. We need you to share your experiences, so that we can help improve care, and you share. We request donations, and you give. We're always able to count on your support.
Thank you again. Whether you gave a donation, your time, or a pledge to do something in the coming year, we are thankful beyond words.
I know that we'll be relying on your passion and your time again. But for now, please watch this thank you video and join me in celebrating our powerful end to 2012 and our shared hope for 2013.
Happy New Year!
