Why raise money for Alex’s Wish

We are dedicated to raising money to put into the hands of the world’s best scientists who have the best chance at bring a cure to market for this generation of children living with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.

  • 1 in every 3,500 boys are born with Duchenne
  • It is one of the most lethal childhood disease around
  • There is NO CURE or effective treatments other than steriods which cause lots of problems
  • Science is making huge leaps and bounds and there has never been a better time for Duchenne boys
  • They now know so much about the condition, what it is and how it could potentially be treated/cured
  • But, they receive little funding from government sources
  • It’s up to charities like Alex’s Wish to raise money to keep the science moving
  • £35 funds an hour of research that could lead to an effective treatment or a cure for Duchenne

Every single penny raised is going to help us get closer to our aim – to cure Duchenne for all!
