Duchenne Awareness Wristbands

Raise Awareness of Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy with Custom Bracelets

Muscular Dystrophy Awareness Month is in March, and events specific to Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) are often held during this time. Green is the recognized awareness color used in conjunction with Muscular Dystrophy awareness. Many events take place for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy Awareness Month, and custom Duchenne awareness bands can be a part of any event. You can choose any message for your custom silicone bracelets. A generic yellow “Fight to End Duchenne” wristband would work well for a big event, or a more personalized band such as “Team Justin—Find a Cure to Duchenne MD” could be used to show support for an individual.

What is Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy?

Muscular dystrophies are genetic disorders characterized by progressive muscle wasting and weakness that begin with microscopic changes in the muscle. As muscles degenerate over time, the person’s muscle strength declines. One type of muscular dystrophy is Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD), first identified by a French neurologist in the 1860s. Here are some important facts about Duchenne from the Muscular Dystrophy Association:

  • Duchenne is found almost exclusively in boys, with very rare cases in girls.
  • A milder form of DMD is called Becker muscular dystrophy.
  • Thanks to advances in many areas of medicine, there are very good therapies available to assist with all the effects of Duchenne and Becker muscular dystrophies.
  • Children begin to show signs of muscle weakness as early as age 3, and most will require wheelchairs by their teens.
  • Complications of DMD include mobility issues, respiratory issues, heart issues, contractures and spinal curvatures.
