Thanks to the parents who put together their children's stories on youtube.
About my family:
I have two children, and boy and a girl, ages 3.5 and almost a year. Both are healthy, as far as we can tell.
My husband works in a school that specializes in children with movement disorders, and I am doing DMD research.

DMD is a devastating progressive fatal neuromuscular disease. It affects the person's entire body. It affects the family. It is also a genetically transmitted disease coming through the mom only to her boys. I believe that a mom can pass her genetic info to her daughter who could have a son with duchenne's. My son has adjusted well over the years and is 26 years old. He has a great attitude and love for life. He is an inspiration to me every day.

Could you tell me what medications you think that they slow down the progress of DMD?

Thank you very much
