Wishes for Drew
In support of Operation: Lifeline
I’m Steve Gunther and I am running for my son Drew and all others affected by DMD.
My son was diagnosed on Valentine’s Day of 2019 with DMD. It was a shock to our tight-knit little family and it knocked us off our feet for a bit. We picked ourselves up, dusted ourselves off, and are fighting back. I am working with JAR of Hope to fund vital treatment Drew and four other courageous young boys are receiving through Operation Lifeline which is a study through JAR of Hope. Treatment is not cheap and fundraising is not easy, but as Drew’s father, I must do everything in my power to keep Drew healthy and active.
I don’t accept the “inevitable” course of DMD. I don’t want my son to stop walking, to stop being able to breathe on his own, to stop being able to feed himself or even lift his arms to hug me, or to have his heart stop working due to being weakened. I am determined to be part of finding the cure for this terrible disease. Join me and support JAR of Hope so that our boys have more hope in defeating DMD!
