Hi, I look forward to meeting you. I am accompanying the Australian speaker in the program and am a director, former president and webmaster of our national parent project. Our new name is Duchenne Foundation however. I am looking forward to your conference so much and finally meeting Ruchika and the rest of our global family. I have been trying to spread the word as best as I can from Oz. I look forward to meeting. Your job sounds like an adventurous and unique lifestyle for your family. Let me know if you need something from Oz? I have to survive preparations for my son's 21st birthday party before I leave.
Thank you for sharing your photos. I was showing my son, who is almost 8 years-old and has Duchenne md your photos. I told him that your son has DMD and pointed to him. He said, "I could tell he has muscular dystrophy." I asked, "How?" and he replied with, "It's always the short one." I asked him if he knew why boys with DMD are short and he said it was because of the medicine "we take." So, sharing your photos with my son also gave us the opportunity to discuss his disease.
You have a beautiful family.
