Team Action

Join Team Action on this amazing challenge and help raise much needed funds to save and change the lives of babies and children.

Despite enormous progress in medicine, there are still hundreds of thousands of sick and disabled children who need our help.  Action Medical Research is offering hope to the many thousands of families who are dealing with the trauma of a baby born too early, striving to support a child affected by disability, or facing the challenge of caring for a child with a rare and devastating disease for which there is no cure.

Children like Tom who has Duchenne muscular dystrophy, a devastating condition that’s diagnosed in around 100 boys every year in the UK – typically when they are just three to five years old. Boys with the condition experience a relentless deterioration of their physical abilities, eventually becoming heavily dependent on others for round-the-clock care. There is no cure and the condition is fatal.

Right now the best medical minds in children’s hospitals and universities across the UK are waiting for the green light to start research that could lead to life-changing treatments for babies and children. Just one breakthrough, however small, can mean the world.
