A question for parents of children in the 51 skipping trials

Hi I just wanted to reach out because I saw you’re also in St. Louis. My son was just diagnosed with DMD a couple months ago, age 2.5 years. If you ever want to get together or even just talk, I’m really looking to connect with other parents in the area!
