I've been considering setting up an actual 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation for raising money for our son's needs and to also funnel more funding to PPMD. I have found similar Duchenne fund websites…Continue

"Hi,     Did Liam change his username? My son tried friending him on the PS4 and it didn't work.  My son is named Mike. His username is Mighty_Mike_23 on the PS4 if he wants to friend him."

Duchenne Boy Looking for PlayStation Buddies to Play Games With

Our 10-year-old son, Liam, would like to find some new buddies to play some games on his Playstation4. He likes NHL 20, Apex Legends, Star Wars Battlefront 2, MLB The Show, Madden NFL 20, Fortnite, Destiny 2, and Minecraft. He's had some run-ins with some older boys (friends of friends) who are sometimes mean, so I thought if he found some other Duchenne boys and siblings he'd have better luck. His PS4 username is TyphoonLiam.Thanks! Jeff Kopp St. Louis, MO…See More

CRISPR/Cas9 Gene Editing

We finally have some very promising news for the development of adequate treatment for our boys with mutations requiring double or multi exon skipping!

In reading through this article about injecting a fully functional version of the dystrophin gene into the body using a harmless virus, it doesn't mention anything about applicability of multi-…

Thanks for requesting our family as a friend on the PPMD site.  You're boys are darling.  I love Liam's hair, so cute.  I have found alot of support and understanding on this site, I hope that you will do the same.  We all are here for each other, if you have questions or need to just vent, don't hesitate.  Take care.

Hi Jeff! Thanks for adding me as a friend. I enjoyed seeing the pictures of your family. Your sons are very handsome. I'm sorry to hear about Liam's diagnosis. Our son was diagnosed at the age of 3 years. He is 14 years old now and to our surprised, he continues to walk with very little use of the wheelchair. Thank you for all of your efforts with fundraising. By any chance are you and your wife planning to participate in the St. Louis Run for Our Son's event on October 23rd? I have registered as a Spirit Runner.

Hello! Great to meet you on this site. I was with MDA for many years before leaving in June and and have been involved as a volunteer with the camp program for more than 30 years. I spent many summers with John (and Joe). What great people! John taught me a lot. I'm available to help in whatever capacity I can. Please let me know what I can do. There are many great families in the St. Lousi metro area that also want to stay invovled. Tell Joe, your wife and in-laws I said hello!! Stay in touch and best of everything to you all.

Hi Jeffrey, Welcome. Congratuations on your baby to arrive in a few months. I'm glad to hear that your brother in law Joe is doing well. Thank your for beginning your fundraising efforts already. Our son, Wyatt, was diagnosed in Jan 09, when he was just 10 months old. Since then my husband ran in the Seattle Run for Our Sons event, and I did a small fundraiser during Coach to Cure MD. Our son is so young still it's hard for us to believe that he has DMD since he shows no signs, at this point. (We didn't know there was a family history until a few months ago) My husband and I decided that we, right now, can raise awareness and hopefully money, like you said, to find a cure. My husband and my father in law both ran the 1/2 marathon last year, This year (June 2010) they have recruited about 25 - 30 people, which is potentially about over 20,000 dollars. I hope we do it. Good luck with fundraising that you plan in the future. And again, congratulations on your "new" son.

Wyatt's Mom, Melissa
