In 1990, on my birthday, I was blessed with a happy and loving son Matt. As he reached his 2nd birthday, he started to show signs of muscle weakness and was soon diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. Just like any mother, I wanted to make sure he experienced a full childhood filled with fun and fond memories.
He was able to walk, run, swim, ride a bike, hit a ball, participate in cub scouts, and gymnastics, though at times it was difficult as his disability slowly progressed. By age 10, he became wheelchair bound.
Matt attended El Dorado County Schools and experienced a fantastic school life with many friends and great teachers! Growing up in this amazing county he was always treated like family with care and respect.
Today at age 27, Matt lives independently in Diamond Springs with awesome caregivers and has a full life with friends and family -- all without having much mobility these days. He's truly an amazing young man, and his step-father Steve and I are so proud of him.
We're sharing our family story with you because being affected by Muscular Dystrophy can happen to any family. The Muscular Dystrophy Association has supported our family for 25 years. Now we want to give back by helping raise funds so MDA can continue helping families like ours UNTIL THERE IS A CURE.
Please help Matt and his Muscle Walk friends on TEAM EL DORADO to raise money for this important cause. Matt's amazing stepdad, Steve, through Steve Stymeist Collision Centers, will match up to $5000 in donations!
