I am a just-retired teacher from 33 years at Palomar College in San Marcos, California. I am still teaching some courses hourly but I have time now to attend to being supported and supporting other families with children who have DMD. My son Todd, lived with me at home until he was 28 years old. He has now been married for almost 8 years. When he turned 18 he was trached and Children's Hospital did not have support for adults. I would like to support any work that is going on in relation to adults with DMD especially as this is where Todd is now in his life.
About my family:
I am the parent of an adult with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. He is 35 years old, married, with a daughter. My grandson was just diagnosed with DMD. My daughter went to the recent conference and gave me this information. I would really like to be a part of this organization. I have 3 adult children, 9 grandchildren, 6 of these grandchildren are genetically connected to me and they are all boys.
Name(s) of child(ren)/individual(s) with Duchenne:
Todd James Galli
Age(s) of child(ren)/individual(s) with Duchenne:
