Mitchell’s Journey – Facebook


In July of 2005 our son Mitchell was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, a catastrophic muscle wasting disease which results in progressive muscle deterioration and is fatal by late teens/early twenties.

By the age of 10 we discovered Mitchell’s heart function had deteriorated much sooner than expected. In less than a year he passed away from acute heart failure.
