Who we are.

Our Story

My Duchenne was built based on the core belief that life for 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, parents often manage huge binders with their 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 for the Duchenne community to continually improve the way we meet the individual needs of each caregiver and child, and give them the freedom they had before the diagnosis.


Get Involved

It’s simple and easy to get involved. Download from the App Store or Google Play and start entering all your or your Childs data. From supplements and medications, blood test results to North Star Ambulatory Assessments. Anything and everything is available to you and circle of caregivers. And if it’s not just get in touch. We’ll add it in.
