The Christmas Raffle has now been drawn. To join the Spring 2019 Great Muscle Raffle, please click here.
Thank you to everyone who took part – your support through playing in the raffle helps us be here for children like Jenson
When Jenson Edwards’ parents, Hannah and Craig, found out that Jenson had Duchenne muscular dystrophy, they felt numb.
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.
From day dot, we thought, ‘How are we going to make this better for Jenson?’ We knew we were going to need support, and while searching for organisations who could help, we came across MDUK and the services they offered ticked all the boxes.
With your support, we can continue to fund world-class research into conditions such as Jenson’s and offer support and advice to his family and every other family and individual living with a muscle-wasting condition in the UK .
