Our Mission

The mission of Michael’s Cause is to raise awareness of Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy as well as direct funding for research by building a strong foundation for future treatments and a possible cure.

Our goal is to save our son’s life and the many thousands of boys afflicted with this fatal disease.
