Fight Duchenne Golf Day

What is Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy?
Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy is a neuromuscular, genetic
disorder which results in the progressive deterioration of muscle
strength and function ultimately leading to the deterioration of
the heart and diaphragm.
The most common form of all Muscular Dystrophies in childhood
is Duchenne , which is 100% fatal, resulting in Duchenne boys
and girls being completely dependent on an electric wheelchair
by their early teens.
Life expectancy for Duchenne is around early adulthood
however some children are losing the battle as young as 8 or 9.
There is currently no cure, with the disease affecting boys at a
rate of 1 in 3500 and girls at a much rarer rate.

Playing For James
On Father’s Day 2006, Julian and Sharyn Thompson heard
the words that no parents would ever like to hear…
“Your son has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.”
From that day until now, the Thompsons have worked tirelessly to raise awareness and, most importantly,
raise money for research to help save their son and other boys from this terrible disease. In essence, a death
sentence that they have been given through no fault of their own.
After four marathon bike rides in Australia and one across Cambodia, as well as concerts, walkathons and
many other fundraisers, Julian and Sharyn have helped to raise just on AUD$2.5 million. The majority of this
money has been allocated to two premier DMD research institutes in Australia, as well as providing funding
for respite care and services into the community.
Boys with Duchenne MD like James will require more and more care going forward. They will lose their ability
to walk and to feed themselves and to perform simple tasks like going to the bathroom or cleaning their teeth.
They will need electric wheelchairs, breathing machines, beds that turn them during the night, ramps and lifts
in the family home, and endless trips to doctors, physios and carers in a specially modified car.
The Fight Duchenne Foundation are making sure boys like James gets the attention and treatment they
deserve. We are focusing on raising the money required to support families day to day as well as building and
running James House.
James House will be a state of the art, all inclusive, utopian style resort for Duchenne boys and their families
to come to the Gold Coast and enjoy this wonderful part of Australia. We need to raise $1 million to make
this dream a reality. The building of James House on the Gold Coast will be the first home purpose built for
Duchenne and muscular dystrophy families within Australia with a network of homes being planned nationwide.
Your help today will make this a reality.
