Thanks for the info! You mentioned "when he is in treatment" what does that mean? Do you only have to go there for certain blocks of time or do you have to go continuously? How long is each session, and do the people at Hope Institute have any medical theory as to why they think it is helping? Jordan is 12 1/2 and is still walking, but fairly limitedly. I do think that if we could stabilize him, medicine in the pipeline could help him down the road. That's why we are considering more novel or unOrthodox treatments right now.

Hello Christine. It's a pleasure to meet you and your beautiful family. I'm sorry to hear about your son Lance. I truly understand how you feel. My son Victor Jr, is going on twelve this year. He will be needing a wheelchair soon. He's been getting extremely tired and it's been tough lately for him to get through his school day. Yes, we should definitely see if we can meet up some time and get the boys together. I also have a 10 year old daughter and her name is Kimberly. She would love to meet your daughter. My email address is vtavarez1@hotmail.com. I will email you with my number and please feel free to call anytime. Take care and may GOD bless your family.

Lance was diagnosed when he was 7. We go see Dr. Giordano at Hershey medical center. We are about 15 miles North of Allentown Pa if that helps. Lance is doing great. He is a sweet boy and gentle natured. :-) He is also pretty tough with all he has to deal with. I have been a real estate agent since 2000, but now I have my teaching certification and I am currently looking for a full time teaching position. I am certified for elementary, middle school science, English 7-12, and Family & Consumer Science..and get this... I can't seem to find a job! I will though, and I can't wait! I just LOVE teaching. God Bless you Joyce, for working in ped. ICU. What an emotionally draining job I would think. I think my husband Marshall and I will be going to Washington DC in February. Anyone else? ;-)

Christine,
Thanks for replyingtomy note. Yes, we are so lucky and hope for a cure for our boys. How is your son doing? Is he on prednisone? What age was he diagnosed? What do you do for a living? I am a registered nurse and work in a pediatric intensiv e care unit at our children's hospital and have for 30 years now.
