Save Our Sons – LinkedIn

Save Our Sons is a children’s charity committed to raising desperately needed funding and awareness to find a cure for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD). DMD is a severe muscle-wasting condition that affects 1 in 3500 children. 99% of children affected are boys. Once diagnosed, children are normally confined to wheelchair between the ages of 7 and 12, and most do not live past their early twenties. DMD has no cure.

Save Our Sons was founded in 2008 by Elie and Nancy Eid following the diagnosis of their Son Emilio. In the past seven years, Save Our Sons has grown exponentially and is proud to have one of the largest celebrity support basis in the country.
