Hi, My name is Dianna Baker and I am interested in this condition because I have a 17 month old grandson who has had problems with muscle control since he was born. He is aspirating his food into his lungs. In fact he is at the lung specialist today, and after poor results from a swallow study…he may need a permanent feeding tube. He has been to doctor’s (including Riley’s Childrens Hospital) on and off, ever since he was born. I’m trying to obtain knowledge of anything that may help me understand. Test after test has brought us no answers and has the doctor’s very confused.


I have a son with duchennes who is 16. He was diagnosed at age 5. My husband lost his job recently, along with our insurance. I would like to find out about any programs that we may not have heard of yet.

A year and a half later, I just realized I didn’t send much of a message :).

I have 3 sons. Now my oldest son Nathan is 21 and my youngest son Christian is 12. Alex, my middle son died April 2, which was 4 days after his 16 birthday, he would be 17 now.


Hello, my son Ben, 9yrs, is living with Duchenne’s. I am hoping to talk with other parents who are going through the same situations. He is still walking, using a wheelchair just for conservation of energy. We bought a new house, hoping that this one will work out better.(Ranch) Would love to hear about others who have modified their homes. We are looking to build ramps this spring and would love ideas and what worked for others.
