About Michael

Michael Capolongo is a 16-year-old junior in high school on Staten Island, NY. Michael has a magnetic personality. Michael was diagnosed with Duchenne in November 2010 and has endured more in the past 11 years than many have in a lifetime.

About DMD

Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) is a genetic disorder that involves rapidly worsening muscle weakness. It is a recessive x-linked (passes mother to son) form of muscular dystrophy. It results in muscle degeneration, difficulty walking, breathing, and ultimately death. 1 in 3,500 boys is affected worldwide.

Michael’s Cause Helps The Community

Michael’s Cause distributed Lunch tote snack bags to Staten Island University Hospital North and South nursing staff as a thanks for all of the hard work in treating and caring for so many Covid patients over the past several months.

Michael’s Cause was proud to contribute to St. Peter and Paul and Assumption Food Pantry yesterday with the donation of food that was collected from the supporters of Michael’s Cause as well as the Monsignor Farrell Football team. In addition because of funds donated to Michael’s Cause, we were able to present a check to Father Michael Chichon in the amount of $2500 to help keep the pantry stocked in the upcoming weeks. We want to thank Linda D’ Auria Petrocelli and Michelle Petrocelli for making us aware of this very worthwhile cause. We would like to thank all of you for once again helping Michael’s Cause in order to allow us to help the community during this very tough time
