Our Mission: Fund and find a cure for limb girdle muscular dystrophy, type 2C.
We are in a race against time. Please join us in our effort to save Kurt, Peter and other kids like them by donating today.
Kurt and Peter lead active lives like other kids their age. Unlike most kids, however, their muscles are deteriorating. Kurt and Peter have a severe form of limb girdle muscular dystrophy (called "LGMD2C").
Children with LGMD2C have damaged genes, which prevent their bodies from producing a protein necessary for healthy muscles. Over time, Kurt and Peter will lose their ability to do things most of us take for granted such as walking. Lifespans are typically limited, with ranges from the late teens into the 30s, and with research we hope beyond.
Research = Hope
Kurt + Peter Foundation was formed by Kurt and Peter's family and friends to raise money and direct it into the hands of researchers who have the best shot at developing a treatment or cure for LGMD2C.
