Family Friday: Reflecting on Adjusting to a New Diagnosis
For many of us, self-quarantine is in full swing, and adjusting to a different family structure may be overwhelming. So your PPMD family is launching Family Fridays to discuss topics that impact the entire family and solutions that we hope will help you make the most out of your time together while maintaining your sanity – including some ways that our whole Duchenne family can find some fun ways to stay as active as possible while also making sure that the fight to end Duchenne remains strong.
Watch the Recording
Exploring, understanding, and making decisions about Duchenne research and clinical trials can be very overwhelming. During our June 12, 2020 Family Friday on Facebook Live, we were joined by Dr. Mena Scavina (Nemours Children’s) and Michael Lo Sapio (parent) to discuss navigating Duchenne research and clinical trials as well ways to advocate for your family.
EXPLORE APPROVED & POTENTIAL THERAPIES
Duchenne research continues to progress, with multiple therapies in clinical trial. Stay up-to-date on the latest progress of drug development in Duchenne.
CURRENT CLINICAL TRIALS
Learn about actively recruiting clinical trials and studies you or your child may qualify for.
CONSIDERING A CLINICAL TRIAL
If you are considering a clinical trial, we have resources available to help you decide whether or not clinical trial participation is right for you and your family.
JOIN THE DUCHENNE REGISTRY
Once you join The Duchenne Registry and complete your Medical Surveys, the Registry will let you know when you might be a good fit for research studies and clinical trials. Your anonymous Registry data is also shared with researchers to speed the development of new therapies.
