Hope For Gus Foundation was founded by parents of Gus, a 6th grader, living with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. After his diagnosis, his parents immediately begin the process of starting own foundation to raise money and fund research. It’s our only hope to save Gus — and all children who suffer from Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.

Our mission is to raise research dollars and awareness of Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. We are committed to funding research that will result in effective treatments in the near-term. Our specific focus is on treatments that will preserve muscles in DMD boys while researchers continue to search for the cure to DMD. We will work to build collaboration within the DMD community because we know that we are stronger together. Additionally, we hope to raise public awareness through fund-raisers, family events and corporate sponsorship.
