Your support through playing in the raffle helps us be here for children like Callum
Callum McCorriston’s parents, Laura and Paul, found that everything changed for them when their 19-month-old son was diagnosed with Duchenne muscular dystrophy.
Duchenne muscular dystrophy is a rare condition that causes muscles to weaken and waste over time. The condition affects the muscles in the legs first, but then also the upper body, the heart and the lungs. It mainly affects boys, and most will lose all ability to walk by age 12. By age 30, the condition is likely to have stopped their heart.
Our outlook in general changed, it was hard to be easygoing after that. We went through a range of emotions and had a lot to think about. But through these times, Muscular Dystrophy UK has been there supporting us. Now our mission is to raise as much money as we can so that researchers and scientists can work to find a cure for Callum and other kids like him.”
With your support, we can continue to fund world-class research into conditions such as Callum’s and offer support and advice to his family and every other family and individual living with a muscle-wasting condition in the UK .
