Defeat Duchenne. Change Lives.

Gift of Life Insurance

Al and Anne Matheson-2

We often look back and recall the devastating news given to our young family that day so long ago. Reality struck with the quiet ride home from the hospital – each of us alone in our thoughts as every mile seemed to creep by in slow motion.  We kept replaying the dreaded words that we knew far too well as my wife’s brother died at eighteen years of age of Duchenne muscular dystrophy.

Yes, both of our sons were diagnosed with Duchenne.  As we watched our sons struggle, we waited and hoped for researchers to find a cure. The cure didn’t come in time for them.  Now in the 21st century, the research to cure this dreaded disease is making great advances every day.

You can join us in making a difference today by leaving a gift that plans for tomorrow. For us, the best way to do this was by donating a gift of life insurance. Our tax-deductible premium payments are building a gift that will one day make a big difference to boys like our sons.

We know there are other families just learning today that they are in a race against time.  It’s easy to make a difference by leaving a legacy, just as we have done, by contacting your insurance agent or speaking to a representative at Jesse’s Journey.

Leaving a legacy will insure that research will continue until the cure is found.

No family should have to go through that quiet ride home from the hospital.
