Hi everyone. I would like to wish group all the best. My name is Doan - Leader of Vietnamese DMD club, I have lived with Duchene muscular dystrophy for almost 30 years.

I'm trying my best to head to a bright future for all the members in club. The club is quite young in age, so hopefully our club could connect to and learn from PPMD community.

PPMD has launched a program – Risk/Benefit in Duchenne Therapies – to help inform the FDA and other government agencies, biopharmaceutical companies, and others about the treatment priorities and risk tolerance of the Duchenne community.

We’ve had a great response to our first survey, with more than 90 participants so far, but need a few more before we close it tomorrow.

If you are a parent or guardian of an adult with Duchenne who has lost the ability to power their own wheelchair, please consider taking our survey before 9 PM eastern tomorrow.

I am working on getting a full ride scholarship for boys with DMD at a Boston University.  I am looking for some stories about why you/your son goes to go to college to help my presentation.

Hi, I'm Kathy and my son Chris is 20. He was diagnosed at age 3. I have a younger son, Bryan who is 18 and does not have DMD. I am married 25 yrs and we live on Long Island. Chris attends college in his power chair with his personal assistant. Chris is shy and I would love him to participate in an online group for young people. Does anyone have any suggestions?
