Mission:
Foundation to Eradicate Duchenne, is a 501c(3) organization established in 2002 with the goal of finding treatments and an ultimate cure for Duchenne muscular dystrophy, the world’s leading lethal childhood genetic disease.

FED supports these broad activities through two sources:
– FED’s fundraising programs and direct funding (~$7M to date)
– Working with governmental programs, particularly the Department of Defense Congressionally-Directed Medical Research Program (CDMRP) (~$70M to date)

FED’s research efforts have built the foundation upon which the active drug development is seen in DMD today.
