Jesse’s Journey is a partnership of science and families dedicated to the discovery of treatments and a cure for Duchenne muscular dystrophy – because parents should not outlive their children ~ Jesse’s Journey Statement of Purpose.

As the only Canadian charity dedicated solely to funding research related to Duchenne, we are known and respected internationally, having granted more than $11.5M to research. The media is an important partner in creating meaningful and impactful stories that reach the Duchenne community around the world. Media looking to write a story about Jesse’s Journey are invited to use information, photos, and videos provided here.
