We live in amazing times, where once-incurable diseases are on the cusp of eradication — if only there were sufficient funding and advocacy.

Duchenne muscular dystrophy is a rare disease that primarily strikes young boys. Jett Foundation founder Christine McSherry (whose son Jett suffers from the disease) is on a mission to help fund a cure and provide aid programs for those who live with DMD.

Full disclosure — I had the pleasure of meeting Christine (and her son) when we were Charity Warriors contestants during the competition’s inaugural season.

McSherry and a handful of VIP friends are making it easy to help their cause. On Monday, March 7, local star chefs will whip up delicious treats at Yale Appliance’s Boston location (296 Freeport St., Dorchester) at Cook for a Cause to benefit The Jett Foundation.

The event will offer sample light bites, paired wines, and delicious desserts from the likes of Yvonne’s Tom Berry and Juan Pedrosa, Paul Wahlberg of Wahlburgers and Alma Nove and Adam Kube of Bastille Kitchen as Jenny Johnson of NESN’s “Dining Playbook” emcees the culinary evening.

“We are in a very important time in the history of Duchenne,” McSherry said.

“For the first time ever, there is real proof that there is a drug that could stop Duchenne in its tracks; however, it is expensive to promote advocacy, and we need all the help we can get.”

Tickets are $100 and available 
at jettfoundation.org.
