The MDC have got in touch to give us a heads up on the launch of their new campaign, Fast Forward, aimed at ensuring that treatments for Duchenne and other muscle-wasting conditions can reach patients as quickly as possible.
This follows the launch of the APPG report last September; and Fast Forward is very much the next stage of that process, bringing together our work to date on faster access to treatments into one overarching campaign.
MDC will be contacting Duchenne families about the campaign in the next few days, but ahead of this we want to share the details of Fast Forward with you, which can be read in full here. The call to action at this stage is for people to write to their MPs; and for their MPs to in turn write to Earl Howe. Hopefully by the time he sees us all in the Autumn for the round table he would have received lots of letters…..
The MDC are currently promoting the campaign over Twitter on #FastForward and they would really appreciate it if we couldall lend our support to this via your own social media!
