Fighting Duchenne muscular dystrophy: Dr. Benjy Seckler

"This is the type of news that paralyzes most."

Potential medicines, especially for rare genetic diseases, take years to develop and test. Patients with Duchenne muscular dystrophy — who rarely live past 25 years — don’t have that time. Dr. Benjy Seckler took action, creating a foundation that raises money for a cure to save not only his son’s life, but the lives of all children affected by DMD. (Filmed at TEDxBerkshires)
