My name is Erin Green, I am a stay at home mom living in Pittsburgh with my wonderful family!
About my family:
My son Riley is 2.5 and has BMD. He is one of the smartest little boys I've ever met. He picks up on everything! He is very loving and sweet. We are worried about how he can't go up steps and can't jump, and walks on his toes at times. For having BMD, he's having more trouble than I thought he would at this age! My son Colin is 14 months, and has no mutation! We are so happy about that. He is a wonderful sweet little boy who loves everyone he meets! My brother Shawn is 23 with BMD. He had a heart transplant at 17, and he uses a cane now. He's the best uncle ever!
My husband Jason is a great husband and dad. He is wonderfully supportive, funny and smart! We love him so much :)

Hi Erin! I see that you have been on this forum for a long time, but I will still write. My son also has a duplication of 2-7 exons. As it turned out, this is a very rare mutation. Can I contact you somehow?
Hi Erin, your son is beautiful, and it gives a great deal of hope to hear about your brother using a cane at 23. You are a strong bunch of people, and wish I was closer to meet your little guy. (I am in Ottawa Canada) we have snow for goodness sake. My 7 year old was diagnosed in July with DMD, doctors say my other son 18 months old may have BMD...He had his DNA test today, can't say i am not scared shitless for the call eh!! Good luck and God bless ya dear!!!
It would be great to meet you and the boys!
I live in the Pittsburgh area and have a son 6 with DMD. I've been in touch with another family in the area as well and we try to get the boys together a few times a year..are you going to volunteer on Labor day at the Mall? Good to find you! Stay in touch. This is my first time posting on the new community site..so may take me time to figure out how to obtain your return message and write back..What part of Pgh are you from?
Hi Erin, my son Wyatt just turned two. Your description of Riley sounds just like Wyatt. He has trouble going up steps and can't jump, even though he is really trying. Keep in touch. It is always nice to talk to someone who has a young one and is in the same boat.
