The Tour Duchenne - Curing Muscular Dystrophy One Kilometre at a Time. at Westmead Children's Hospital (INMR)

March 7, 2009 all day
The Tour Duchenne is the brainchild of London-based Australian, Julian Thompson. Julian’s son, James, was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy on Father’s Day, 2006. Julian conceived the idea of The Tour Duchenne ‘Million Dollar Challenge’ while preparing for a Muscular Dystrophy charity ride through Cambodia in 2007. As Julian says, “Actually, I thought about it a lot when I was training during spin classes, in preparation for the Cambodia ride last year. I came up with something real…See More

Guilt

2 years ago I was going through some ruff times. I was trying to do it all. I have 5 children all together 3 with DMD. There was a school nurse that asked me a question that I will never forget. For one did I know what birth control was and why did I decide to have children. She thought it was irresponsible to continue having children after I found that my first son had DMD. She wanted to know why I didnt abort the other children when I knew before I had them that they Could possible have DMD.… Continue

IEP's Its hard to hear the bad news

Posted on December 15, 2008 at 7:34pm 6 Comments

i have 3 boys with DMD, I just recently went to my 6 year old sons IEP. It is hard to sit through it. Not only is my son affected with DMD he has major learning disibilities. I felt like a target in the room they sat and told me all the things that he couldnt do it was devestating.They are pulling him out of regular kindergarden and putting him in a self contained classroom. I met with the school phychiatrist, teacher, ot/pt and principle. I felt so alone in there about five minuets into the… Continue

Teresa,

It is hard enough for my husband and I to come to terms with having our only son diagnosed with DMD, but to have 3 would be totally incomprehensible. My heart goes out to you and your 3 boys. I know nothing I say can make you feel better, to feel what I am feeling threefold must be unbelievable. You are doing the best you can, though I know there are days when you probably feel like giving in. But don't give up, your boys are there for you and you are there for them. You need to make your family unit strong, and hopefully they will understand and appreciate all you are doing for them. Be strong, and on those days where you find it all too hard, come on here and we will all be there as a shoulder to cry on or an ear to scream in. We are all here for you!

Sharyn.

Welcome Teresa to PPMD Community. You will find your needed support here. You have come to the right place. I myself could not imagine having 3 boys with DMD. I only have one child and it is hard enough. Enjoy each and every day with your children as each day is a gift from God. We have the knowledge ahead of time, where as most do not and lost their children without having the ability to know and appreciate what they had. Kari Isaiah 40:31
