Christine McSherry

Christine McSherry founded Jett Foundation in 2001, when her son now 24-year-old Jett was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. As head of the Jett Foundation, Christine co-founded the International Duchenne Alliance, a partnership of over 40 independent organizations that has funded nearly $15 million dollars in research to date.

Christine has advocated for the patient perspective to be considered by the FDA when reviewing safe and potentially effective treatments for Duchenne. In April of 2016, Christine presented the Jett Foundation’s Patient Centered Outcomes report at the FDA’s meeting of the Peripheral and Central Nervous System Drugs Advisory Committee.
