In October 2013 at the age of three, our little boy Jack was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. Jack is like any other cheeky, smiling, fun loving 3yr old boy, who loves playing, running, climbing, kicking his football and watching Star Wars. We now know, that this will not last, and like other boys with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, Jack is facing a race against time.
Hope is out there though, and with the continuing work of scientists, and modern research, a cure is closer than ever before.The Fighting Back For Jack fundraising group has been set up by the family of Jack, who are raising money to go towards a breakthrough research project for the Muscular Dystrophy Campaign.
As a family we could not stand by and do nothing so Fighting Back For Jack have joined in the battle against this condition. Our goal is to raise funds and awareness so that progress towards further treatment, and ultimately a cure, is continued. We do this in the hope that a cure is found in time to save Jack, and the thousands of other boys out there who are living with this terrible condition before it is too late.
We are organising and taking part in a number of events over the next 18 months including the Coast To Coast Challenge 2015. If you would like to sponsor us or make a donation, please use this page.
