About me:
I am mother to Jett - now 14.5 years old, diagnosed in 2001 with DMD. At that time, the Jett Foundation was founded. Since its inception, JF has raised $2 million for research related to treatments/cure. Nearly $1 million allocated specifically to PPMD and Project Catalyst. JF also supports the pediatric neuromuscular clinic by sponsoring a multidisciplinary program with Dr. Brian Tseng at Mass General Hospital, Boston. As a Registered Nurse, I have been able to provide support to the clinic and nationally to families affected by DMD.

JF partners with other organizations with similar missions; PPMD, Cure Duchenne, Charley's Fund, Ryan's Hope, JBs Keys, Romito Foundation, Ryan's Quest, Nash Avery Foundation and many others.

Jett Foundation is excited to launch "JettRide 2010 - The Journey Continues for DMD"...Learn more at www.jettride.org
About my family:
My husband and I have five children; Jordan (17), Stephanie (15), Jett (14), Jackson (13), Tabor (12). As a family we enjoy swimming, skiing, hiking, sailing - we have been fortunate to be involved with many adaptive sports programs to maintain our lifestyle. Our family has always embraced life, despite Jett's diagnosis -- we will continue to work towards our goal of establishing better treatment, quality of life and supporting the future of all affected by DMD.

Keep them coming - I am thrilled to have so much interest in the next JettRide!!!


The first JettRide in 2007 was truly a labor of love. My daughter Jordan did the entire ride, 3,800 miles in 9 weeks, at the ripe old age of 14 and "NO", she was not an athlete of any sort. She had never ridden a bike before that! I really didn't think she could do it - I learned that our kids, our "normal" kids, really have so much to offer when given the chance. They want to help,…

During the Jetride I felt it was important to stop and say thank you to the group. We were able to see them and in Dayton at the NFL Hall of Fame. What a wonderful group of people it was a pleasure to be able to meet them and let them know that I thought what they were doing for Jett, my son, and all the other boys with dmd was appreciated.

Hi Christine,

Thank you very much for your very informative message! I agree with you on all the points and I am very, very grateful! I really appreciate all you and Dr. Tseng are doing for our boys! I will be looking for the paper in 3 weeks.

Thank you,
Ofelia

Hi Christine,

Would you be able to give me any more details about the supplements Dr. Tseng studied? Do you know when the paper will appear? I think you mentioned that it was accepted for publication.

Thank you,
Ofelia
