Hi. My name is Windy and my son son Skyler was diagnosed this past September with Duchenne, he will be 2 March 7. I am so happy I found this site and can talk and relate to parents that are going through the same as myself and my husband. This is really new to us and we are trying to cope and understand. I know the pain will never go away.

I have not been on in while. Everything is a lot different. My son is 5 years old and has duchenne. We found out when he was 3 almost 4.

We live in Clermont, Fl. The child that has Duchennes is Willie age 8. He was diagnosed at age 3. The Shriners hospital has been a blessing for our family. Willie thinks he is the ambassador for Shriners. He collects soda tabs to take for every visit. He manages to take in about 50 pounds each visit. Pay it forward. His neurologist at Shriners is Dr. Fernandez. (what a good man).
Willie is currently in the clinical trial for PTC 124 phase 2B. He goes to Pensacola every 3 weeks. After the first of the year it will be every six weeks and he has his last muscle biopsy in April for the trial. The has been many downs and a few ups during the trial.

My wife Angie and myself (Jose) have three kids: Andrew, soon to be 19, Alexandria 13 and our angel Daniel. He is 10 and diagnosed with DMD at age 5. We live in South Florida exactly at Pembroke Pines. Daniel has the Non-sence mutation and we were one of the "lucky" ones to participate in the PTC124 trial phase 2a about 2 years ago. Very soon Daniel will start taking PTC124 again, this time for a period of at least 2 years. We are very excited and hopeful he will get better or at least his process will slow down or stop. God bless, the Castro Gang
