Find-A-Cure funded research at
A.I. Dupont Children's Hospital
A fully functional genetic cure for this disease may take as long as 10 years or more to realize. Meanwhile, two of these boys die each day as they wait for that cure. Find-A-Cure is unique in that as we search for a cure, we are not forgetting the children who cannot take advantage of the cure...but could benefit from a treatment. Treatments, like insulin to a diabetic, will extend and preserve the quality of life for the children who are waiting. Find-A-Cure has chosen to fund treatment research that has a promising potential and a short leadtime. For the first time in Duchenne research, your contribution could be the key that unlocks the door to a miracle.
Remember when you were young and you wanted to change the world into a better place? Find-A-Cure has put that opportunity right into your hands. We are seeking finanical support for specific studies in an effort to yield short term clinical applications. Contributions to our 501(c)3 organization will benefit from the federal tax deductions. On request, major patrons can be associated with the research studies they have funded. YOU CAN make a difference!
