The logo started with the Brotherhood Knot.
- For Duchenne families, they are part of a brotherhood, hoping for a cure, connected by the disease.
- For Duchenne patients, they are young men and boys, a brotherhood, fighting.
- For everyone, connected by a cause, to find a cure, to improve the lives of those living with the disease.
All connected, all united, brothers in arms, a brotherhood united, a knot holding them together.
In 2007 the Romito family was hit with devastating news, Dominic was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD). The neurologist explained to them that Dominic’s muscles would rapidly deteriorate, he would lose the ability to walk, to use his arms, the ability to take care of himself. Eventually Duchenne would attack his heart and lungs and the disease would take his life.
