Great michelle. We see it on HD Sport channel here, but not with the ticker tape of the Darling Habour Event. Thanks for letting us know it has airplay.

I started planning a fundraiser to be part of the inaugural ukulele festival here in Cairns, got great support from over 30 Australian artists. Someone with DMD thought of ukes before I did - see this lovely tribute on youtube.

Hi Diane
If you can bring the boys to see Banana's in PJ's next month and help us celebrate the launch of our new brand, Blueball we can meet. My blokes are quite a bit older as you see my my image, but it is my youngest son affected too. He'll be at Darling harbour event and it won't be long until our 3rd national conference at Sydney Uni with Westmead . You will learn so much and meet kindred spirits. Noah is going to be OK, I believe that. Anyway you are in just the right spot and I wanted to put you in our loop! nite Deb (send me an email so I can subscribe you to our infrequent

Hi to everyone out there, my name is Johanna and I have two sons, Dylan who is 3yrs and Caiden who is just about to turn 2yrs. Dylan was diagnosed with Duchennes at 20 months of age and started on steroids immediately, we now have him on Deflazacorte which the Childrens hospital Melbourne import in for us. Dylan has a deletion and I have just found out I am not a DNA carrier. I live in Craigieburn Victoria with my husband Tony our kids and a Golden Retriever named Cooper and a white cat called Tigger. Would love to chat with anyone else on the site if you would like?

I'm Kelly, mum to Aidan (5) and Owen (2.5).

Aidan was unexpectedly diagnosed with DMD in May 2007, 2 months before his 4th birthday, and has duplication of exons 8 & 9. I am not a carrier, and Owen has had a CK test, and the result has come back within the normal range.

We have been living in England since August 2007, yep, the weather is crap ;-) . I am originally from Melbourne, but moved to Cairns in my teens, which where my family still live and enjoy the never-ending sunshine!

Anyway, I thought I'd say a quick hello to everyone. I look forward to 'meeting' you all!

You are not the only one here, there are so many links, trying to read all of them and get familiar with them. I see that we are prescribed with Prednizone here as Deflazacort is not available in Australia, not sure if it can be ordered overseas or not. Hoping it will be available here one day too. Have you guys decided when you are moving back to Aussie? Speak to you soon. Jo-Anne
