The Greatest Gift is the Gift of Hope

Category: General 

The greatest gift is the gift of Hope! 

This is a season for hopefulness.  The Joshua Frase Foundation has been faithful with your investment to find the most advanced research available for congenital myopathies and myotubular myopathy.  Will you partner with us financially as we move into this critical stage of several research initiatives?

Dr. Dowling is a neurologist and scientist at SickKids. In September 2016, he was appointed as the inaugural Mogford Campbell Family Chair in Clinical Neuroscience for his work in congenital myopathies (a broad term for any muscle disorder present at birth). 

Dr. Dowling and his team have discovered a drug, previously used as an anticancer agent, that has shown to increase muscle strength and survival in pre-clinical studies. We are in the process of moving into clinical with children and we need your help. 

By making a gift before the end of the calendar year, you can put your contribution to excellent use immediately.

Wishing you and your families a blessed holiday season!
