Conquering Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy
Duchenne is a severe and progressive muscle wasting disease. It’s 100% fatal! Alex is 9 years old if it follows the classic course it will leave him in a wheelchair by age 12 and paralysed by his teens and will not live beyond their twenties. At this moment in time, there is NO CURE.
His Wish, Our Mission!
Alex’s wish is to fix his and other children’s poorly muscles! Our mission is to raise £1m by 2020 to get into the hands of the world’s leading scientists who have the best chance at making a cure a reality. So far we have raised £360k since late 2012. We are working closely with the wider Duchenne community to co-fund new clinical trials. Become a Wish Warrior today! Alex’s Wish are proud winners of the Leicester Mercury Business Awards 2016 in the Not-for-Profit category.
