I am a 41 year old mother of 1 child, Kelly. Kelly is 10 years old and is a manifesting carrier of DMD. Since her diagnosis (apprx 5 yrs ago), I have not read much about female carriers who are symptomatic and would like to meet both adult manifesting carriers and families who have daughters who are manifesting carriers.
About my family:
My husband, Paul, and I have been married for 18 years. We have one child, a daughter named Kelly. Upon learning of Kelly's condition, Paul and I have made it our mission to seek the best possible forms of treatment we could provide.

Hello Gicela, I also have a daughter, Nikki, soon to be 9 that is a manifesting carrier of DMD. I would love to here your story and find out what doctor you are seeing. Nikki has her first appt. in July at UNC. How much does Kelly know? I am also in touch with 2 moms that both have 13 yr olds with DMD. My biggest concern is trying to minimize her leg pain which is prevalent most evenings. It is nice to know that their are others like us,
It's nice to "meet" you! I love Denville, it's nice that we are so close!
If you're interested in running in a race that's not on our calendar you can set up a fundraising page by clicking here and then selecting Create A Fundraising Page. We'll send you a team shirt to wear during the race and can help you with your fundraising page and provide monthly training tips. If you have others who wish to run with you, you can form a team first and then each person can sign up as part of your team.
I hope this information helps, if you need more details or have other questions please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
