My son Ryan (4 years old) has recently been diagnosed with DMD and just this week the DNA tests showed that he has deletion of exons 5-7.
Have you had any luck finding other families with boys having this…"
I am a chemist working at the Goethe University, Frankfurt am Main, Germany. I have a blog, written in hungarian, about my son and his disease: http://duchenne.freeblog.hu

thanks for your message and information about your son. I have lived in Frankfurt for 5 years, we moved from St.Petersburg, Russia. Actually I don't have any contacts with the families in Frankfurt, I tried to establish them but I didn't get any feedback. I'm a member of the Deutsche Gesellschaft fuer Muskelkranke, the main office is in Freiburg. In Frankfurt a monthly meeting of members or non-members takes place every first Thursday in Preugnesheim. I used to go there but now I don't. If you need more information may be it will be better if you call me and we meet because I have a lot of information that I receive from this DGM society and that will be usefult for you. My son is alreay 23, he has Becker MD, he was examined in Wiesbaden at the Klinik fuer Diagnistik by Dr.Schrank. You can also apply to the University Klinik; so my telephone number: 069 20241763; mobile: 017663177040. Do not hesitate to contact me.
