Hi all!

I was wondering if there was anyone on here that has a sibling with DMD?  Just trying to find others who can relate to my experience with DMD. My brother is 30 with DMD and he is still fighting!  I'd love to get involved somehow.  I am not working and have free time this summer.

Hello everyone!
I just posted in the discussions about the Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy Gala I am planning for August of 2011 in the Philadelphia metropolitan area. If you are interested in helping out, I could use all the advice and guidance in the world! Please check out my post. Also, if anyone else is having any kind of fundraising activities, please let me know and I would love to get involved.

Hello Pilar
We would love to have you join our group. Does PPMD have your contact info?
It is very frustrating so it does help to speak to other parents and family members going through the same thing.
