On February 9th, 2017 our life was turned upside down when our youngest son, Fritz, was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, at just 10 months old. Since this diagnosis, our family has taken on the motto, 'Strength is more than muscle.' we have seen strength be shared in many forms such as; selflessness, kindness, determination, awareness, and so much more! Our community has gathered around us, and given our family so much strength as we navigate such a difficult DIAGNOSIs that we in turn desire to share our message of strength with everyone we meet! 


OUR desire

As of November 2017, Fritz & Friends is an official 501c3 Non Profit Organization. Two major ways we, as an organization, desire to bring strength to Duchenne are;

  1. Raise awareness
  2. Fund life-changing research, with hopes of a cure

We'd love for you to join us in our efforts. Please check out our events page, partners page, and our take action page, for various ways you can help us bring strength to Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. 

Our Mission
