Every year on September 7th in different countries around the world, red balloons are released into the sky as a symbol of the International day of Duchenne muscular dystrophy (World Duchenne Awareness Day). The goal of the campaign is to raise awareness about the disease and to spread knowledge about the daily maintenance therapy.

The project Red Balloons is based on our family’s story and is for parents who raise boys with Duchenne muscular dystrophy. The purpose of the project is to tell parents about the importance of early diagnosis and the daily maintenance therapy that could improve the quality and the duration of children’s life.
