race-to-yes

It’s been an extraordinary few months since the White House answered over 106,000 Americans who joined The Race to Yes. Because of you, decision makers in Congress and the FDA began to accelerate the process of making safe, effective treatments available to so many boys with Duchenne. You changed the world.

Regrettably, the race is far from over.

In recent days, a series of difficult developments appeared once again and put the path to approval just out of reach. With the medical world watching, and the lives of thousands of boys at risk, we need you to join the next lap of this increasingly challenging course.  We need you to know first hand exactly what is happening.

Save the Date for December 16th at 1 pm EST:
A 45 minute webinar to update you on the Race to Yes, Pilot Trials and additional news on the successes that have been achieved in 2014.
