My name is Margarita, I live in Ukraine, Kirovograd. I have a son, who is ill with Duchenne. My name is Margarita, I live in Ukraine, Kirovograd. I have a son, who is ill with Duchenne. He is now 10 years old. Doctors diagnosed the illness at the age of 6.5.  In Ukraine, no one treats such children. Therefore, we are forced to travel to Israel each year to see a neurologist. There we learned how to swim in the pool, ride a horse, do special exercises (such asstretching) every day. For 2 years we have been able to stop the disease. But last 2 years my son fells woster than it was early. I would like to communicate with the American parents and doctors who probably know more  about new  medicines or methods for treating this condition. My email my-science@ukr.net. If you have a free time write me on my email I wiil wait.
