We started Michael's Cause shortly after our son Michael was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy at the age of 4. Our goal has been to raise awareness about this disease and direct all funding to the best medical and scientific research to find better treatments and a future cure. Duchenne is the leading fatal genetic childhood disease that affects 1 in 3500 boys worldwide. Thanks to all of you we have successfully funded over 2 million dollars towards research. From the bottom of our hearts we thank you!! Michael is now 13 years old and walking strong!!
