With the growing concerns regarding COVID-19 (“coronavirus”) across Canadian communities and the world, we want to provide an update on the Defeat Duchenne Family Forum scheduled for Saturday, May 2, 2020, in Montréal, Québec at Shriners Hospitals for Children – Canada.
Jesse’s Journey and La Force will be postponing the event until later in the year.
Please see the release from Shriners Hospitals for Children – Canada here.
People with Duchenne are immunocompromised (if on steroids) and have heart and lung problems. This puts them at a higher risk of developing complications from coronavirus if infected. The health and safety of the Duchenne community is our priority, and we cannot take any chances.
We will continue to communicate with experts in our community and follow the advice from Health Canada as we make determinations regarding future events.
We thank you for your patience and understanding. We will communicate the new date for the event once known.
Please don’t hesitate to contact us should you have any questions or concerns.
