My name is Dana Edwards and my husband Brian and I are from Toms River NJ. Our son Tanner 4 was diagnosed a yr ago yesterday. We have six children and he is the youngest. His deletion is 3-36. We were told he had a Beckers deletion and a Duchennes progression. I am not a carrier (thank god). I would like to join the New Jersey group and hopefully find some friends that speak this language. I am so tired of explaining it and it hurts sometimes . I'm so mad also I kinda want to punch Jerry Lewis for not yelling at the MDA to give the bulk of funds to Duchennes because I feel that this is the worst of almost every MD. I keep reading # one genetic disease 100% fatal. I'm sorry but this is so frustrating. Hope to talk to you soon.

Well, I've finally signed on to PPMD Community and still trying to navigate around the new site -- was so used to the old site. Many of you know Gene, Kevin and me (Patti) and we are part the of the NJ FACES group and we are in the Overview Video that I use very often as a tool to get the word out about PPMD and what DMD is all about. It is especially good for those who don't quite understand all this to view -- it gets the message across. I hope to meet more of you and hope that many of you are planning to come to the "Pour for the Cure" event that NJ FACES is working on. I know it will be a great success and so wonderful an event. Please check out my page here and learn about Kevin's story at Hope to hear from manhy of you soon. Kevin has been seen for the last five years at Columbia Presbyterian in NYC and once a year for the last two at Cincinnati -- they are very thorough there and if you can get there I highly recommend it. I like to also have the contact with a local area hospital and that is why we still get seen at Columbia in NYC and they are very open to workiing with Cincinnati. If you have any questions about either, please let me know.
Keep the faith everyone,
Patti Frank

My daughter takes my grandson to Dr. Finkel in Philadelphia at the Childrens Hospital in Philadelphia (CHOP), she is happy with Dr. Finkel's group.
