About Duchenne (Pronounced “Doo-shen”)
Duchenne is a rare genetic disorder affecting approximately 1 in 3,500 – 5,000 live male births worldwide and in very rare cases, 1:50 million females.
Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) is a severe type of muscular dystrophy that primarily affects boys. Muscle weakness usually begins around the age of four, and worsens quickly. This disorder progresses by first robbing a child of the ability to walk, before progressing to loss of upper body strength and personal independence. Eventually, the heart and lungs are affected, requiring support for breathing. Life expectancy for those suffering from this disorder is typically in the mid-20’s.
There is currently no cure for Duchenne, but there are extensive research programmes and clinical trials underway as the international community of researchers and industry work for effective treatments. Your generous support in purchasing this calendar contributes to global research efforts to combat this disorder, as well as funding support services to grant the best possible quality of life for those living with Duchenne, and their families.
Duchenne Australia strives for all Australians living with Duchenne and associated dystrophinopathies, to have access to evidence-based care, and the best possible quality of life, through advocacy for emerging therapies, research and clinical trials.
Visit us at www.duchenneaustralia.org to find how you can help us to create a better future for those living with Duchenne.
