Inspiration from witnessing what people with Duchenne muscular dystrophy CAN do triggered the creation of #DuchenneCan – a global movement that celebrates and highlights remarkable individuals living with Duchenne, the people who love and care for them and the groups dedicated to supporting them.
Everyday efforts and achievements that most of us take for granted – such as living independently or navigating a career – can be just as inspiring as the big moments, like graduating from college (which more and more young men with Duchenne are doing).
Since its launch in early 2021, #DuchenneCan has brought together stories of individuals in the community whose abilities, strengths and determination have inspired personal growth and progress, positive change in the community and amplified the voice of Duchenne globally.
The goal of #DuchenneCan is to highlight positivity in the Duchenne community, share experiences, and inspire and empower future generations. Join us, to continue to raise the voice of Duchenne in 2022.
