The World Duchenne Awareness Day is grateful to receive a message from Pope Francis. This year, he is once again giving his blessing for World Duchenne Awareness Day. Below, you can find the official message from Pope Francis. We are giving thanks to WDO Board member and president of ADM Argentina Santiago Ordóñez for this opportunity.


I send warm greetings on this new World Duchenne Awareness Day. Adding myself to the hope of a better future for all people affected with this disease.

I pray for all of you and, please, I ask you to do it for me as well.
