Hi Ryan, I met you briefly at the connect conference this weekend and Patrick Rownd said to get in touch with you and you could walk us through the advocacy piece and how to get started. We are in St. Louis, MO. 63109 and I know senator Blunt has already signed on, but Claire Mccaskill has not. Not sure where we are in Missouri as far the house. Any help would be very appreciated as we are just getting started.

Hey Ryan, Do you guys happen to have any guide lines or a packet for Physical Therapy? I have been running into a lot of issues with them doing activities that are not helpful to Danny, but "they are the professonal" so I thought if I had something I could just give them that would help! Let me know, also please let me know if and what you need me to do for district 5 (53214) WI. 

Thanks, Melissa Meller (Danny Ell's Mama) :)

Hi Ryan,
My son Austin(DMD) goes to a private school. Every year we have a 5K Run to raise money for the school and a portion of the money they send to Parent Project. Could you send me some information that maybe can be passed out at the race about what duchenne is and what Parent Project is all about?

Hey Ryan,

It was great meeting you at the Run for Our Sons Dinner at Naples/Disneyland. Thank you for welcoming us.

Please could you send me the Manifesting Carrier DVD and materials that you have available. I will gladly give you my new address once you add me as a friend to keep it personal if that is okay. We have moved since I last received materials which was probably 2008 sometime. Also, let me know how PPMD can have more presence on the West Coast.

Thank you.

Hi, Ryan,

Looking forward to catching up with you at the conference this week. I started a discussion last week to see if anyone who is attending might see it and contact me or Diana about the study. It didn't attract any attention, but I don't know if there's a more direct way to invite conference participants. I believe you all may be including info about the study in the welcome packets for participants, and Diana should have sent you a podium announcement (or will give it to you in ATL). If you have any other suggestions, please let me know. Thanks a lot.

Hi Ryan,

Hope you are well. I have a question about COQ10. Its a suppliment. Are you aware of this suppliment and do you know of any potential benifits to our boys? I have just become aware of COQ10 and would like to find out more. Maybe if you know of another family using this product you could pass along the info to them.

Hope to see you at the conferance in 2010.

Steve Beaulieu
