Andrew Taylor wasn’t expected to live beyond his teens.
“I guess the prognosis wasn’t so good,” he told 7.30.
But now, more than 40 years since he was diagnosed with a severe form of muscular dystrophy, he has turned 50.
It’s a milestone for anyone, but for him it’s a truly remarkable achievement.
When he was a little boy, Andrew Taylor was clumsy and tended to fall over a lot.
At seven, he was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, a genetic disorder that occurs in about 1 in 5,000 boys and causes progressive wasting of the muscles, eventually affecting breathing and the heart.
