Alex's Wish selected as D&W's charity of the year

Danaher & Walsh has selected Alex's Wish as its nominated charity of the year.

Alex's Wish exists to eradicate Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, an aggressive form of Muscular Dystrophy that affects 1 in every 3,500 boys born and results in progressive muscle wasting. 

Every single muscle is destroyed due to a lack of protein - including the heart and lungs. There is currently no known cure.

This remarkable charity was established by Emma and Andy Hallam, after discovering that their son Alex was affected by the condition. Its aim is to raise vital funds to help bring new treatments to affected boys as quickly as possible.

Alex's Wish is a lean charity, with all of the trustees working on a voluntary basis. All funds raised go towards new projects that will either help bring about new treatments or help fund vital work to ensure that as many boys can take part in clinical trials as possible.  

Costs are kept to a minimum and spend on projects is subject to scrutiny by a stringent scientific advisory board, ensuring that the projects are fit for purpose and will work within an acceptable timeframe.

This generation will either be the last to die or the first to survive. That's got to be worth fighting for!
