With your help, other families like Luca's can look forward to more Christmases with hope in their hearts. We know these are challenging times and that all of us have more demands on our finances than ever before. But could you spare just a little to give more hope this Christmas?
When Luca was first diagnosed with Duchenne muscular dystrophy in 2013, we knew that the likelihood of him doing what other children do, like riding that Christmas bike, were limited. But thanks to Muscular Dystrophy UK (MDUK), and the innovative drug Translarna, we have hope this Christmas.

If you can give a gift today, you could help fund the information service, helping to ensure people can find accurate answers about neuromuscular conditions, both on the web and by calling the helpline. The difference this has made to Luca's and his family is simply incalculable.
A larger donation could help support the advocacy service, helping more families like Luca's secure the funding for the vital home adaptations they need, to make them as accessible as possible to the changing needs of a child with a muscle-wasting condition.
With an especially generous gift, you could help pay for ground-breaking research that MDUK funds, giving hope for future generations and bringing us closer to a world where there are treatments and ultimately cures for all muscle-wasting conditions.
With the support of people like you, MDUK can continue to fund research to help find more treatments and potential cures for people with muscle-wasting conditions.
Please support in any way you can. Wishing you a wonderful festive season.
