Amelie Davy was diagnosed with Ullrich congenital muscular dystrophy (UCMD) when she was just three years old.

Her mum, Magda, says, “We had to come to terms with the diagnosis. We had a young family so we carried on with life even though putting on a brave face can be hard. The support MDUK provides, especially in those early days, is crucial.”

Every entry in the raffle helps us fund pioneering research into treatments for muscle-wasting conditions and continue to provide vital support services to improve the lives of people living with these conditions.
