"Our son Grant was born June 2006. He has a duplication of exons 5-7. Of course he is still doing very well, because he is only 5 years (can walk and run short distances). He does has language problems and a deficit in short-term memory, but is so…"

About my family:
We live in The Woodlands, TX (a Houston suburb). The boys enjoy swimming, fast cars, wrestling, and all the things that boys love. Our life goal is to increase awareness and find a cure for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy...so our boy and others like him can enjoy walking, running, and playing for many years to come.

Grant
Age(s) of child(ren)/individual(s) with Duchenne:

Starting a Blog...What is Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy?

Posted on June 30, 2009 at 5:30pm 1 Comment



Hi...My name is Heather

I never thought I would start a blog (I am just not the type). I have always enjoyed my privacy. I have had quite a normal life, mostly followed the rules (except for a few wild times in school), finished college (Go Longhorns!), have great friends and family, married the man of my dreams (well..no one said my dream was perfect...just kidding), and moved to the Houston suburbs. Before I got pregnant, I had genetic… Continue

Heather,
It was so nice to meet you at the conference. It was definately a tough few days but it is nice to know that we have support out there and that we are not going through this alone. If you ever need to talk just shoot me an email.

Heather,
I'm sorry you've had to find PPMD, but it's wonderful that you have. You won't find a better support network or place for the latest information. I'm in Montgomery, so not too far from you. I would recommend that you join the Texas Group and the South Texas FACES group. Our FACES group meets again on May 30th in Houston. Please let me know if there is anything you need or I can help you with. I remember those first day/months after diagnosis very well. It's very overwhelming, but it will get better.
