Porch Nite

Porch Nite was founded in 2018 by two Jett Foundation Community Ambassadors and moms of children affected by Duchenne to bring love, support, and laughter to mothers affected by Duchenne across the United States.

Each virtual Porch Nite event is free and will be live via Zoom at 7:00PM ET. Register below! After you register, you will receive an email with the details to join the Zoom call.

Carrier Conversations

Carrier Conversations is Jett Foundation’s monthly virtual support group for women in the Duchenne community who are carriers of Duchenne muscular dystrophy (whether they are manifesting or not).

This group is a safe space for carriers to connect and chat with each other. It is an informal, intimate setting that ensures women feel comfortable and empowered in organic conversations that arise, which may include but are not limited to: care, being a caregiver, self-care, medical issues, guilt, and more.
