Billy Ellsworth

Billy Ellsworth (pictured) completed the Pittsburgh Kids marathon. This is extra special because Billy can still walk, due to a clinical drug trial in the US, based on novel research created here in Western Australia.

This ground-breaking research led by Professors Steve Wilton and Sue Fletcher, has enabled kids like Billy, who have Duchenne muscular dystrophy, to do things which they would not have ordinarily been able to do. This dedicated research team is committed to changing young lives, like that of Billy Ellsworth.
