Welcome to the Beat4Life website.

Fletcher & Daniel have a relatively rare type of Congenital Muscular Dystrophy called L-CMD. Like all muscular dystrophies, this condition is progressive in nature and marked by generalised muscle weakness. In addition, however, L-CMD brings significant cardiac and pulmonary complications. Severity is variable, but L-CMD is always life limiting and there is currently no treatment or cure.

This fundraiser aims to raise the money required to conduct research and clinical trials aiming to beat L-CMD.

To help fund the next phase of research, which will look at refining successfully screened cardiac drugs, click the donate button which will send your donation directly to CURE CMD, the organisation managing the research funding. Donations are made through PayPay which accepts credit cards, debit cards or through your PayPal account if you have one. Please note that you don’t need a PayPal account to make a donation.
