I live just out side of Salt Lake City Utah. I am married with 3 children and 1 stepdaughter. I work full time for an Equipment Leasing Company.
About my family:
I have been re married for almost a year now to the most wonderful caring man I know. Together we have three daughters, ages 6, 8 and 11 and 1 son, Tyler Padilla who is 16 with Duchenne. He loves anything to do with the weather. Tyler was the Utah's local MDA Ambassador for 2006, it was such a fun year helping to raise money and being on the local news here for the telethon.
My oldest daughter, Rylee helps me so much with Tyler, she's my little side nurse. My Biggest Hope and dreams are to find a cure for DMD, or help make the quality of life I do have with my son the best it can be. Tyler has a younger sister, and younger brother also with his father and step mom. We have a wonderful blended family that has so much love and support for Tyler, we are truly blessed.
