Hello, we live right outside Buffalo NY. We are in the midst of modifications and getting a powerchair for our son Ben who stopped walking this past Dec. I would love to know about things that helped in both these areas. We were denied for the chair that we tried to get for him, and we are appealing it now.

Hi, I am located in Pleasantville (Westchester County). My son (5 1/2) was diagnosed with DMD couple of weeks ago. I am having a real hard time trying to find a good neurologist/ doctor in and around New York city for regular follow-ups. I would appreciate if anyone has any recommendations.

Thanks Allison. I thought this would be a good venue to keep in contact with all the NY families.
