Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy Group on Facebook

My 10 year old grandson Owen has Duchennes. My daughter has formed a support group on Facebook. She started the group to raise awareness about Duchenne and to make a place where others with children or family members with Duchenne could support each other. We are so excited....Today her group reached a great milestone.... The group now has over 3500 members and is still growing. What an amazing show of support for families who are battling this disease everyday. If you are on Facebook and would like to show your support, please feel free to join. Lots of sharing of information, support and news.

Leola, this is wonderful news! Thankfully, I don't have any relatives afflicted with this terrible disease, but we have had friends in the past who suffered with it. Support is so important!
