New (well kind of) here. I have been a volunteer at MDA camp since 1980. I just finished the adoption process in China for my son. He is 6 and has Duchenne. Waiting on the deletion/duplication test results.

Our son Kyle is 4 and was diagnosed in May 2009. Nothing can ever prepare you for something like this. My goal is for us to live for today and enjoy every minute of it!

As of Thursday we have Brandons final diagnosis, DMD, with a deletion of exon 33. I guess you all know this by now, but no matter how ready you THINK you are to hear that, you are NOT

To the Owens, good luck in Cincinnati. With disease, hope is all that keeps me going at times.
To the Smiths, my son was diagnosed at age 3 in 2001. It was the worst news ever but with support, you can make it. It is a hurt that only the few of us who are affected can understand. Keep the faith, it will get you through.

We live in Midland (C0lumbus) Georgia. Jacob is 7 years old and was diagnosed November 2006. He was enrolled in the study July 7th. We leave in the morning to go to Cincinnati to have a muscle biopsy done then the following week to begin the PTC 124 ( or placebo). We are excited and concerned but mostly hopeful.

The necessity for such a group is sad,but I am glad to have found it. Our son Brandon is 8 and being diagnosed now. Neurologist is pretty positive he has DMD, and after much reading, cant imagine it"s anything else, . We live in Blairsville
