Hello Marti;
I too have a "senior" son with DMD. Curtis will be 32 in April. Please see my page for our story. I would love to correspond with you as it is difficult to connect with younger Mom and there little guys- you know just what I mean..
Regards, Robyn

Hello Marti
My name is Jasmine and I had to come and speak to you when i read that you still have a 37 year old son at home. I am sorry to hear that he's in the hospital. I will pray for Michael's recovery. I'm just so glad he's 37... I hope he feels better soon and hurries home.

I am so sorry to hear about Gerin. I can't even imagine. I would love to know more about the boys. Do they have Duchenne or Beckers? My doctor told us life expectancy was much less than you have been fortunate to have experienced. I don't mean to intrude and will undertand if you can't talk about it. My heart goes out to you.

Hello there how are you guys doing? We are doing really good. It's been rough but you have those weeks I guess. I'm glad you joined. I'm going to try and start a fundraiser for Damien through PPMD I just feel I have to do something and that's what I decided to do. I'm glad you joined thank you.

Welcome, Marti to PPMD. You will love the support and wealth of info on PPMD Community. Although, I think we could all learn a lot from you since you are a veteran of DMD.
