Jeffrey Kopp replied to RAKTIM SINGH's discussion Multi exon skip
"I emailed Dr. Aartsma-Rus about this just the other day, since our son, Liam, also has the deletion of exons 46-50. Here is her reply: Liam's mutation is relatively common and indeed would need double exon skipping to restore the genetic code.…"

About my family:
My wife is a carrier of Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. Two of her brothers were born with the disease. Her oldest brother, John, died of DMD in 1998 at age 30. Her younger brother, Joe, passed away in November of 2012. Our first son was born healthy in 2003, but we we had a second son in February 2010, and DNA testing has shown that he has inherited the disease (he has deletion of exons 46-50). So we are getting a head start on trying to raise money and awareness via PPMD's site for research to ultimately find a cure. Please visit our fundraising page:

Thanks for requesting our family as a friend on the PPMD site.  You're boys are darling.  I love Liam's hair, so cute.  I have found alot of support and understanding on this site, I hope that you will do the same.  We all are here for each other, if you have questions or need to just vent, don't hesitate.  Take care.

Hi Jeff! Thanks for adding me as a friend. I enjoyed seeing the pictures of your family. Your sons are very handsome. I'm sorry to hear about Liam's diagnosis. Our son was diagnosed at the age of 3 years. He is 14 years old now and to our surprised, he continues to walk with very little use of the wheelchair. Thank you for all of your efforts with fundraising. By any chance are you and your wife planning to participate in the St. Louis Run for Our Son's event on October 23rd? I have registered as a Spirit Runner.

Hello! Great to meet you on this site. I was with MDA for many years before leaving in June and and have been involved as a volunteer with the camp program for more than 30 years. I spent many summers with John (and Joe). What great people! John taught me a lot. I'm available to help in whatever capacity I can. Please let me know what I can do. There are many great families in the St. Lousi metro area that also want to stay invovled. Tell Joe, your wife and in-laws I said hello!! Stay in touch and best of everything to you all.

Hi Jeffrey, Welcome. Congratuations on your baby to arrive in a few months. I'm glad to hear that your brother in law Joe is doing well. Thank your for beginning your fundraising efforts already. Our son, Wyatt, was diagnosed in Jan 09, when he was just 10 months old. Since then my husband ran in the Seattle Run for Our Sons event, and I did a small fundraiser during Coach to Cure MD. Our son is so young still it's hard for us to believe that he has DMD since he shows no signs, at this point. (We didn't know there was a family history until a few months ago) My husband and I decided that we, right now, can raise awareness and hopefully money, like you said, to find a cure. My husband and my father in law both ran the 1/2 marathon last year, This year (June 2010) they have recruited about 25 - 30 people, which is potentially about over 20,000 dollars. I hope we do it. Good luck with fundraising that you plan in the future. And again, congratulations on your "new" son.

Wyatt's Mom, Melissa
