With all of the stress and worry in the world, we encourage you to take the month and focus on bringing awareness to your health and wellness. Your support means the world and makes a difference in the lives of children and young adults living with Duchenne.

We want to thank the incredible facilitators who will be donating their time and expertise to help create this diverse 25 days of mind and body growth!


No words could explain what Kasha and her husband felt when they were given the news that their 4-year-old son, Jude, had Duchenne. Their lives since that day have consisted of numerous trips to Children’s Hospitals, many medical interventions including surgery, trial medications, tears, tough conversations and sleepless nights.

What brings hope?

The support and compassion from friends, family and the people whose faces they have never met. Hope is born in the caring of others and it’s this hope that fueled Kasha and Maggie to create The MASH Movement.

The MASH stands for movement, awareness, service and health. These core values are the foundation and purpose of their social platform and fundraising events. Their aim is to end the fatal diagnosis of Duchenne muscular dystrophy. Their hope is to build connections and community while helping others mentally, physically and emotionally along the way.

About Jesse’s Journey:

Jesse’s Journey is Canada’s leading charity in the fight to defeat Duchenne muscular dystrophy – the most common fatal genetic disease diagnosed in childhood.

For the past 25 years, Jesse’s Journey has empowered patients, families, and caregivers living with Duchenne through education and resources, provided a collective voice to advocate for access to treatments in Canada, and has become the country’s largest funder of Duchenne research investing more than $13.1M in projects around the world.

About Duchenne muscular dystrophy:

  • Affecting approximately 1 in every 5,000 boys in Canada, Duchenne gradually weakens the body’s muscles due to the loss of the protein, dystrophin, ultimately leading to the deterioration of vital organs, such as the heart and lungs.
  • Most kids with Duchenne use a wheelchair by the time they are 12, and with improved care powered by research, more people with Duchenne are living into their early 30s.
  • While we celebrate the progress made, we are still in a race against time to find a cure, and must fight to ensure Canadian boys and young men have equal access to treatments once discovered.
