CureDuchenne, an advocacy group for people living with the rare genetic disorder Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) is producing a virtual gaming tournament, in partnership with PTC Therapeutics. Scheduled October 10, the event is designed to connect gamers and DMD patients, to help reduce feelings of isolation, connect with support systems, and build awareness of the need for treatments for the rare disease.
Gaming can play a critical role for people living with DMD. In advance of the tournament and Mental Health Awareness Day (also October 10), patients are available to share their stories, engage with interested people and connect with support. More information is available at https://bit.ly/3izcquT .
