Manchester, England (PRWEB UK) 26 February 2013
A little boy called Jack is suffering from a recessive form of muscular dystrophy called Duchenne muscular dystrophy. Commonly referred to in shorthand as DMD, this condition affects about 1 in 3,600 boys and, more rarely, girls; however, there is currently no known cure for the condition. It is for this reason that the charity Joining Jack is endeavouring to raise money to fund research to find an effective set of treatments to combat DMD - and UK online furniture retailer Select Furnishings intends to help them by raising as much as possible for the charity in 2013.
Through raising enough money to fund the discovery of a cure for DMD, Joining Jack could make a huge difference for the better not only for Jack, but also for many other young people around the world who are living with DMD and, of course, many future generations of DMD sufferers. Select Furnishings intends to do its bit to help Joining Jack in its mission by not only fundraising, but also using the Select Furnishings website to spread the word about Joining Jack and its aims.
There can never be too much money for Joining Jack
Joining Jack does not have any specific target in mind concerning how much money it should aim to raise. Indeed, it is believed that a range of drugs will have to be developed to treat the various problems that many people can suffer from due to having the condition of DMD, and the charity wants to help to put funds into as many of these projects as possible. Hence, there can never be too much money raised for Joining Jack to put to a good use in helping to combat DMD.
A 'Select Furnishings' spokesperson stated: "Joining Jack is our nominated charity and we are very proud to help as much as we can to help Jack and many other young people suffering from DMD. We hope that we can help to spread the word about Joining Jack and its aims - through publicising the charity on the Select Furnishings website. This should help to ensure that many people, via our customers and visitors to our website, learn more about Joining Jack."
