We're the mom and dad of the family described below...
About my family:
Dave, Sharon, Daniel and Ethan Holgate. We live in Cape Town, South Africa. Dave is a mathematician, Sharon a mom and part time lecturer in children's literature. Daniel (10) and Ethan (8) are terrors! Daniel was diagnosed with DMD at age 20 months but Ethan has been spared. They are the best of friends and fiercest of enemies...their parents are exhausted :)
Name(s) of child(ren)/individual(s) with Duchenne:
Please, no apologies, sometimes I find myself looking at this site, view some of them and reply and then do not go back into the site for a while finding that when I do, so much has changed. The Christian DMD was a discussion started by Kari and yes, it is for people who are christians and want to or would like to share on there and also it is for prayer and spiritual uplifting. I have not read much of it lately as I mentioned, it is there for us to support us. Hope you will find some of the entries of members very interesting and should learn lots from them. Please do not hesitate at any stage to ask questions or if you would like to email me too, with pleasure. Hope to hear from you sometime. I am visiting South Africa at the end of the month, spending my time with my family in Umhlanga Rocks. Looking so foward to my visit. The boys and I are visiting. Take care. Jo
