|I love life and my passion is to save my son’s life. He has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, a 100% fatal genetic condition with no cure and no treatment. It is the biggest genetic killer of children on the planet... so I started, and am CEO of Harrison’s fund. www.harrisonsfund.org|
If you’ve got Duchenne, you can’t produce dystrophin, a protein you need to build up your muscles and as a result every muscle in the body deteriorates.
It leads to a wheelchair by the age of 12 and on to respiratory failure, heart failure, and other debilitating complications by their early 20’s.
One in 3,500 boys is born with it, and in the UK 2,500 kids has it at the moment no matter where you are or what your ethnic background is. A third of all cases start in the womb.
