Given there were no other organizations dedicated to raising awareness and educate on the benefits of stem cell therapy for DMD and other rare diseases. This is our why and we continue to realize the dire need for our role to enhance advocacy and education to help more families we relate to.

Our Mission

Advance stem cell therapy to become the Standard of Care for Duchenne and other rare, chronic and incurable diseases, while becoming the go-to resource for people seeking therapy.

Our Vision

Provide a renewed hope for people with Muscular Dystrophy and other life-threatening diseases by advancing support, education, and access to adult stem cell therapy.
