Trendsetter is a proud partner of JAR of Hope
Jar of Hope’s mission is dedicated to bringing awareness and raising funds directed to ongoing research in the hope of eliminating Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.
On September 2013, Jim’s only son, Jamesy, was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. When diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, a child (mostly boys) between the ages of 9 and 13 will lose the ability to walk and be confined to a wheelchair. Around 15, they will lose their ability to move their arms and around 18, they will lose their ability to breathe on their own and require a ventilator, eventually affecting their heart muscle. Without a cure, they will live with Duchenne for less than 25 years.
Jim has dedicated his entire life to spread awareness, completely on his own, and unfortunately as Jamesy is now 10 years old, the time is ticking. If there is anything that can be done to help share Jim’s journey, every single person this story touches, it matters. It matters to Jim, it matters to Jamesy, and it matters to all of the young boys and their families who are suffering every single day.
