Joining Jack

Exemplum are proud to be associated with our chosen charity Joining Jack. Jack is 5 years old and in October 2011 he received the devastating news that he has Duchene muscular dystrophy. Failing a medical breakthrough, Jacks life will follow a predetermined path, mapped out by his progressive muscle wasting condition. In short, he will no longer be able to walk by the time he reaches adolescence and will lose the use of every single muscle in his body. He may need spinal rods to keep him upright and ventilation to help him breath. Eventually his heart and lungs will fail, and he will die.

Joining Jack was set up to find a cure for DMD, a horrible disease that only affects young boys. To date over £1 Million has been invested by the charity to fund research to combat this heart-breaking affliction.
