10tv Interview – Push To Fast Track Drug To Help Children With Deadly Disorder

Click here to see our story about pushing the FDA to approve safe, effective treatments for Duchenne.

Mar 14

The Race To Yes!

As you know, Jackson, Noah, and Jacob all have Duchenne muscular dystrophy, a debilitating muscle-wasting disease. Duchenne MD is the #1 genetic killer of children worldwide. For the first time ever, a new medicine has proven safe and effective to treat the disease! But only 12 kids have access to it in a small clinical trial. Please sign the White House petition to help get this and other new therapies approved quickly. We need 100,000 signatures by March 29 to get a White House response. Anyone 13 or older can sign here:


Once you have signed, please consider telling friends, colleagues, customers — anyone who might spend a minute or two to sign the petition. This regulatory policy not only impacts our community, but ALL drug approvals for treatment of rare diseases that afflict children in this country.
Click here to watch two moms whose sons have Duchenne explain the issue on Fox Business The Willis Report yesterday (video is approximately 6 minutes long).
As always, thank you for your support.
