Our son, Lucas, was diagnosed with Duchenne muscular dystrophy in August 2018. It was a devastating and heartbreaking diagnosis. Lucas is still able to walk now, but we know that he will lose this ability.
However, we have hope. Through organisations like Save Our Sons providing funding and support there is a lot of research underway into effective treatments. Save our Sons also provide support and assistance to families via equipment, funding specialist nurses and overall emotional support.
We are walking to raise as much money for Save Our Sons as possible so that Lucas and all the other boys with Duchenne can live a happy and fulfilled life.
