Story

In 2014 my son, Felix, was diagnosed with Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD), an incurable muscle-wasting disease that has a profoundly negative impact on almost every aspect of his life. Felix and thousands of other boys with the disease need a cure, fast. That's why I support Duchenne UK and am taking part in the the Duchenne Dash. The charity is super smart and super efficient and is moving mountains to develop treatments, connecting the best scientists with industry, the NHS and families to advance and accelerate every stage of drug development. Together, we will end Duchenne.
