Budding Journalist Hawken Miller Offers Advice on Living With Duchenne


At 21, Hawken Miller certainly doesn’t look like a typical Duchenne muscular dystrophy patient.

For one thing, unlike most boys and young men with Duchenne, Hawken isn’t obese — or even overweight — even though he’s been on steroids for years.

That’s because he eats a balanced, high-protein diet with generous helpings of broccoli and other healthy veggies. Hawken, already an expert on the subject, also limits his salt and sugar consumption.
