Duchenne muscular dystrophy is a genetically-based disorder that affects mostly boys and causes a gradual decline in muscle function. It affects approximately 1 in every 5,000 boys and is the most common fatal genetic disorder diagnosed in childhood with an average life expectancy of 25 years. Jesse’s Journey is the only charity in Canada that is solely dedicated to funding research into Duchenne, and grants more than $1 million per year to research. In honour of the 20th anniversary of our founder John Davidson’s walk across Canada, we are pleased to share our new documentary featuring some of the families who face Duchenne and the researchers who work tirelessly to help improve the lives of all boys who face this disease. Thank you to Brick House Productions, Sifton Family Foundation, and PTC Therapeutics for their support of this special project.
