A Letter in the April 11 Tomahawk Leader

Dear Editor:

The recently launched groundbreaking gene therapy trial for Duchenne muscular dystrophy provides an appropriate opportunity to thank the local community for helping to make MDA’s important scientific progress possible. It’s been a long road to this significant event, and the local citizenry has steadfastly fueled the effort.

Building on 50-plus years of research by the Muscular Dystrophy Association, the new gene therapy trial is filled with promise for saving your lives or at least slowing the damage wrought by a relentless, progressive disease. It’s one of many cutting-edge investigative avenues that MDA’s worldwide research program is pursuing in quest of cures and better treatments for the 40-plus neuromuscular diseases in MDA’s program.

We’re deeply grateful to all the people across the country who’ve helped through their contributions to MDA. Thanks! The march toward a cure just took a big step forward.

Carolynne Younk
