Profile Information

About me:
I am a wife, mother, grandmother, sister, daughter and I am a very blessed woman. I have many very good friends and I am a very good listener. My family and friends are very important to me but my God is number. My son Michael is now with the Lord and free of Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. Michael and I never gave up hope for a cure for DMD but we ran out of time. Mikey entered the gates of heaven in February 2007 and received eternal life with Jesus which was better than a cure here on earth. Our boys can never be given back everything that DMD steals from them and us (the ones that love them). Michael was 26 at the time of his death and would be 29 years old now. I miss him so much!
About my family:
I have four sons and three grandsons. I have been married for 35 years to Johnny. My sons are Eric, Johnny, Michael and Matthew. My grandsons are Eric Jr., Johnny, and Jaiden. Isabelle M. Rivera is our newest addition to our family.
Name(s) of child(ren)/individual(s) with Duchenne:
Michael B. Rivera
Age(s) of child(ren)/individual(s) with Duchenne:
19 or older
Fontana, CA
My son Michael entered the gates of heaven on 2-20-07, at the age of 26. He passed away from cardiac arrest. I will be attending a funeral on Friday June 6, for Dominic Sandoval 15 years old, he also had Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.

I am so sorry to hear of your loss and the loss of another one of our children, Dominic.

I live in Sacramento California. My son is 16 years old. There is so much our children need. I am very active in advocating our congress for more money for research and care because our children desparately need this.

I would like to recommend to areas I think you will find of interest and I hope as a community we can help each other and push forward monies to change the course of dmd and establish better care.

Go to groups and join California groups. I hope we build a lot of resources to help each other.

Another so very important section is under the Discussion forum and that is Advocacy. We are presently pushing hard to get the MD Care re-authorization bill passed. Both Senators for California have signed on and we need more House members to support it. Please let me know if you need more information and how you can help. You may already be active in this. I am just trying to help push to get as much help as we can.

I wish you only the best,
