Nonprofit Spotlight: The Jett Foundation

by Michael Polzella

The Jett Foundation aims to increase worldwide awareness of Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) by raising funds for programs, education, research and advocacy to fund treatments, realize a cure and ensure all affected by Duchenne have the opportunity to enjoy a full life.

In 2001, Christine and Stephen McSherry started the Jett Foundation after receiving devastating news their then five-year-old son Jett had DMD, the most common and lethal childhood genetic disorder in the world, affecting one in every 3,500 male births.

For over 15 years, Christine has been a tireless advocate to find a cure. Donate here.
