Melissa... My sister Monica also helps me with my son Josh, he is 9 and has DMD. Sisters like you and her are the only reason mom's like me can get up everyday and face it with a smile. Know that you are special, wonderful, and amazing and without you, your nephew would be missing a huge piece of love and happiness. Thank you!

Melissa, Thank you for the welcome! I was involved with the PP many years ago - really at it's beginning. My son will be 23 in May. God bless you and that sweet nephew. What precious pictures. I'll try to upload some of my children soon.

Hi Melissa,
What a great aunt you are, and I can see what a darling boy little Brogan is. No wonder you are crazy about him. Both of you are lucky to have such a wonderful relationship. I wish you all well. Barbara

Hey Melissa,
Are you all coming to the Tailgate at LSU for coach for the cure? There will be a bunch of us! If you are, let me know what T-shirt sizes you need!
Thanks! Lori

Hi Melissa, I live on Terry Drive in Arabi. Where does your nephew attend school. Who is his doctor (MD)? How did you family find out his diagnosis? My grandson was a toe walker, went to gastro doctor, liver enzymes high, then ran CK level (muscle enzyme) was 15,000!! Doctors in S. Florida diagnosed as Becker MD but went to Nationwide Children in Ohio (Jerry Mendell Clinic) and they changed to Duchene. My grandson is still walking, however, in school he has started to use a motorized chair. He tires easily. Would love to know more about your nephew and I would be glad to share about by grandson. Networking helps. Joyce

I am the maternal grandmother to Wil, age 8. I live in Arabi but he lives in South Florida. Does your nephew live close by? Joyce

Hi and welcome. You caught my eye as I, too, have a son named Liam. He's was diagnosed with MD two months ago and he will be nine this November. DOes the gray cloud overhead ever go away when you get a diagnosis like this???
