NFL Star Clay Matthews Uses His Platform for Duchenne Awareness


Clay Matthews, the Super Bowl-winning linebacker for the Green Bay Packers, became a part of the rare disease community almost by chance. His first exposure to Duchenne, a rare muscle degeneration disease that affects boys, was for a CureDuchenne PSA that he lent his likeness to. That year happened to be the year Matthews and his team won the Super Bowl.

The win meant the PSA received plenty of airtime, and Duchenne gained significant awareness. In the months that followed, Matthews found himself drawn into a tight-knit community that was searching for a cure.
