Today, 7 September, the World Awareness Day on Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy is celebrated all over the world, an important initiative promoted by the World Duchenne Organization and coordinated, at the Italian level, by Parent Project aps. The aim of the day is to raise awareness of this rare genetic disease that leads to progressive muscle degeneration. And for the 2021 edition, World Duchenne Organization wants to focus on the theme “Duchenne and adult life”. In recent decades, the life expectancy of people with Duchenne has increased significantly and becoming adults living with Duchenne presents new challenges, difficulties and opportunities.

It is the most severe form of muscular dystrophies, occurs in early childhood and causes a progressive degeneration of the muscles, leading, in the course of adolescence, to an increasingly severe condition of disability. At the moment, there is no cure. Research and treatment by a multidisciplinary team have made it possible to improve the general conditions and life expectancy of children.World Duchenne Organization is a worldwide collaboration between Duchenne family and patient organizations that aims to improve the treatment, quality of life and long-term prospects for all individuals with Duchenne muscular dystrophy (Dmd and Bmd).
