Some 40,000 people in the UK have the progressive muscle wasting disease known as muscular dystrophy, a devastatingly cruel and unforgiving disease
Diagnosed children will not be able to walk by their early teens and will be confined to a wheelchair
Those children with the most severe type known as Duchenne muscular dystrophy will die in their late teens due to either respiratory or cardiac failure
Muscular dystrophy is a degenerative disease that destroys lives and ultimately will result in 40,000 premature deaths
