My son was diagnosed with duchenne muscular dystrophy in 2005. This video is a short summary of his recent loss. After a routine echo-cardiogram we discovered Mitchell's heart is showing signs of heart weakness not typically seen in kids with DMD until the later stages of the disease. The significance of this is .... breathing complications and heart failure is the most common cause of death in young men with DMD.
The road ahead will be dark and dreary, but we will do our best to provide some light, love and hope on the path for our young boy who faces a certain and difficult future.
