Our son Alexander was diagnosed in March of 2011, at the age of three with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD). DMD is a neuromuscular disease that primarily affects boys. It occurs in 1 out of 3500 boys worldwide  and progressively robs them of their ability to walk, use of their arms and eventually attacks the heart and lungs.

Many boys with DMD will have to use a wheelchair by the time they reach the age(s) of 8-10 and a majority will need the aid of breathing equipment by the time they are in their late teens/early 20s. Survival is rare beyond the early 30's
