JAR of Hope was founded by James Raffone, by an unwavering resolve that comes with the desire to preserve the life of his young son who got diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy in 2013. He spearheads all JAR of Hope initiatives while running the organization’s day-to-day operations. JAR of Hope’s mission is dedicated to bringing awareness and raising funds directed to ongoing research in the hope of eliminating Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.

Through various funding and awareness campaigns, JAR of Hope remains steadfast in its mission to knockout a disease that has, until now, remained undefeated. With each dollar raised, we will fight to finance the necessary research that could result in enhanced Duchenne treatment. The hope is to cure this horrific illness, and to preserve the innocent smiles of Jamesy and other boys suffering from Duchenne for as long as possible.
