Hi! I just figured out how to join a group. I live in Pasadena with my husband and three children. My 11 year old son has DMD.

Take care all,

My name is Susan, my son Jonathan is 17 and was diagnosed when he was 9. I have been married for almost 25 years and we also have two daughters ages 22 and 18.

Have a blessed day!
