Our Son Trent was born with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD), a rare and incurable disease affecting 1 in every 3500 boys born each year. This 100% fatal disease causes progressive muscle weakness that ultimately leads to life-threatening heart and lung complications. The average lifespan of a child suffering from DMD is mid-to-late 20s.

Trent attends therapy 3-4 times per week and that will only increase as he grows older. He is constantly visiting different doctors across the nation for the best treatment possible.

Powers Promise was created to promote awareness, educate others and partner with DMD organizations to help find a cure.

We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your support!
