Boys with Duchenne are living longer, better lives.
Although Duchenne is considered a disease of motion, most boys with Duchenne will die of heart failure ... because the heart is a muscle too.
Multiple interventions are being developed that can dramatically extend the heart funtion in these boys.
Your support is needed to allow these boys to become men.
Our Cardiac Initiative is dedicated to two boys who died too early of heart failure and the doctors who are pioneering the way forward.
