Hello Vilma,

I just read your post and am so sorry to hear of such great loss. I too lost my beautiful son to DMD. I would welcome talking to you any time. Sounds like our boys shared a lot in common.

Love and Hugs,

Hola Vilma, me gusto mucho hablar contigo, gracias por toda la infomacion y tu tiempo. Es increible como esta enfermedad une personas, que en otras situaciones no hubieramos conocido. Hoy estoy un poco triste, Nicolas se cayo anoche despues de mucho tiempo y en su dolor tenia animo para decirme "I'm OK", me rompe el corazon. Bueno seguire en contacto contigo, a ver si puedo comunicarme con tu hija pronto. Un abrazo.

Thank you so much for those beautiful words, I know Dylan would want for us to be a happy family once again. It's just that I sometimes feel that he will think I forgot him, because I could never forget him. Deep down I know he won't think that, he knows how much I love him and always will.
