In March 2016 our son Gabriel was diagnosed with a muscle wasting condition called Beckers Muscular Dystrophy. To say we were heartbroken is an understatement; as a parent you never ever want to be told that something is wrong with your children.
As a family we have made the decision to turn this negative into a positive and by fundraising for the charity, we feel we are contributing in a very positive way and hopefully showing other families out there that some good can come out of bad.
Gabriel faces a very uncertain future and with all the advancements in medicine that we are blessed to have available today, we need to do everything we possibly can to help in the effort to find a cure or have treatments available to slow down the progression of this awful condition. Beckers affects so many boys and their families but together we can help give these boys the best lives possible.
Muscular Dystrophy UK are making a difference for tomorrow, accelerating progress in research and driving the campaign for access to emerging treatments and we need all the fundraising support we can gather together.
As well as providing funding for world class research, Muscular Dystrophy UK also provide practical information, advice and support, campaigning to bring about change and raise awareness.
Thank you for your support.
