The current Corona pandemic is profoundly impacting our daily lives. It changes the way we spend time, and it alters our habits. Although it is changing our daily life, it cannot overrule our projects and voices.
As Duchenne community, we are very aware how strongly this affects us in terms of isolation, facing emergencies and adaptation. We are familiair with words as fear, pain and distance. However, we are trying to turn fear into hope, pain into resilience, and distance into closeness.
We are sharing a message linking to the general awareness of World Duchenne Awareness Day 2020. One that many people have experienced, and are still experiencing: Together we are stronger. Even after the emergency will finish, our cause will still be there, our engagement is still there and we need every single person to be involved.
Together we can raise our voice and awareness of Duchenne and Becker muscular dystrophy during World Duchenne Awareness Day on September 7. With strength and creativity we can make a difference.
