This isn't a picture of me or my son, it's just the picture shown on the site from the Muscular Dystrophy Association. What you will find on this page, is a description of my oldest son's disease. He is my hero, and has taught me so much about grace, courage, and living life to its fullest. I will miss him so much when he's gone. Words fail to honor what his short life will mean to me.
Scientists have reversed symptoms of myotonic muscular dystrophy in mice by eliminating a buildup of toxic RNA in muscle cells. The work, carried out by scientists at the University of Rochester Medical Center, Isis Pharmaceuticals Inc. and Genzyme, is published in the August 2 issue of Nature.
