1) Raise funds for Euan, so we can give him and his two brothers the gift of happy memories and the opportunity for Euan to live life to the full, and to ensure he receives the best care possible.
2) To give the gift of vital support to other families affected by DMD, via Muscular Dystrophy UK and their specialist care advisors. Muscular Dystrophy UK pays for regional care advisors across the UK, to support families like ourselves to come to terms with the massive shock of a DMD diagnosis and what is facing them. They also support them through the tough journey of living and caring for someone with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.
