Our Story

My Duchenne was built on the core belief that life for an adult with Duchenne and caregivers to a child or young person with Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) should be made as easy as possible. It has been created for the Duchenne community by the Duchenne community.

The physical, emotional and financial strain of Duchenne is significant. On top of this, adults with Duchenne, and parents often manage huge binders with their own or a child’s medical information. We need to offer them a tool that relieves this stressor, enabling them to communicate with medical professionals across the world and track data patterns in a meaningful way.

This is where My Duchenne fits in. It is our duty to the Duchenne community to continually improve the way we meet the individual needs of each adult, caregiver and child, and give them the freedom they had before the diagnosis.
