Hope for Javier strives to turn HOPE into reality for thousands of boys affected by Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD). Our sole mission is to help change the outcome for these boys in two ways:
Funding cutting-edge translational research - research that focuses on moving science from the laboratory into human clinical trials - to accelerate the development of life-saving treatments.
Supporting efforts to promote advocacy in order to: maximize the collective DMD investment in breakthrough research, improve the standards of care for all DMD patients, and ensure consistent implementation of the latest care standards - ensuring the best possible quality of life for all boys afflicted by this devastating disease.
4 Paws for Ability enriches the lives of children with disabilities by training and placing quality, task-trained service dogs. This provides increased independence for the children, and assistance to their families. And 4 Paws also works with veterans from recent conflicts who’ve lost the use of their limbs or their hearing while in active combat. In all cases, the results speak for themselves. 4pawsforability.org
