Hello Family and Friends,
It’s race time again and we are getting closer and closer to finding a treatment and eventually a cure to our son Corbin’s disease Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. We need your help though, now more than ever! PLEASE PLEASE come out and run with us or make a donation which will go directly to Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy who uses it for extremely crucial research to help us, and thousands of other desperate parents, help our sons.
Duchenne is the most common fatal genetic disorder among children. To date, there is no cure or treatment to stop the progression of Duchenne. That is an extremely difficult sentence to write, let alone comprehend when it is your own son you are referring to. Our beautiful, talented, super intelligent, funny, kind hearted son. The one we thought we’d get to see grow up and have kids of his own. The reality is that boys with Duchenne are truly in a race against time as their muscles deteriorate further each day.
Many of you that know him know that he has found his passion in music and playing in the percussion section for the Argyle High school band. I dread the day that playing his instruments will be too difficult and that he will be robbed of that ability as well. These precious boys go through their lives having one ability after the other taken away. It is beyond heartbreaking.
Please help them. There is more research on the horizon for Duchenne than ever before and we HAVE to keep this momentum going. Corbin is still walking and we want to help him continue walking as long as he possibly can but we need your help. Every single cent helps and is appreciated beyond words.
Join us November 2nd at Hilltop Elementary in Argyle at 8am to run for the thousands of boys who can’t and desperately need our support. Or click to send a donation on this page. We cannot thank you enough for reading this and taking the time to help us.
