The cornerstone project of Matt’s Promise is research for the treatment and cure of Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD). While receiving treatment for his own terminal disease, Matt learned that the then three-year-old son of his childhood best friend was diagnosed with this dreadful and devastating disease. The news hit Matt hard, and he was determined to do all that he could to help Charley and other young people receive the best medical care and emotional support available and to fund research to find a cure.
