Two Foundations. One Goal...
To Support Duchenne Families.
Little Hercules Foundation and Team Joseph have a strong history of working together to fund promising research. Recently, we decided that while we believe in the promise of future treatments, we also saw the need to help families right now. In this moment. We identified two priorities—to offer families financial assistance with expenses related to the care of a child or young adult with Duchenne, as well as provide guidance to families in order to access FDA approved treatments.
In order to work most effectively and efficiently, Little Hercules Foundation will provide case management services to patients and caregivers who have been denied access to FDA approved treatments for Duchenne. Team Joseph will take the lead on providing assistance that includes, but is not limited to, equipment (scooters, manual wheelchairs, shower chairs, etc.), accessible ramps, transportation to clinic visits, vehicle modifications, and home modifications. Assistance is also available for educational opportunities, such as conferences, so families can educate themselves about the therapeutic landscape and improved standards of care.
The process is simple, and the only criteria for applying is a diagnosis of Duchenne muscular dystrophy.
