(£0.00 funds raised)
‘Joining Jack was created in 2012 by Andy and Alex Johnson, the parents of a then four-year-old Jack, after he was diagnosed with the Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD).
There is currently no cure for Duchenne, it is a terminal progressive muscle-wasting disease mainly affecting boys. When Joining Jack was launched almost seven years ago, very also very few treatments which could slow down the boys’ deterioration though adolescence, the disease attacking every muscle in their body.
Now thanks to more than £2 million being raised by the JJ Army from the support of thousands of followers in Jack’s hometown of Wigan where dad Andy was a star Super League champions Wigan Warriors, and high profile endorsement from ambassadors including Tour De France winner Bradley Wiggins, England Rugby Union captain Owen Farrell, and RL legends Martin Offiah and Sam Tomkins, great strides are being made for all the boys living with DMD.
