Women in the City of Good Neighbors’ Sheds Light on Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy

“You don’t want that for your child. Every mother wants their child to live and enjoy life and be able to do things, but to watch my bright, beautiful baby lose function is very hard.”

Dr. Neera Gulati told WBFO that her son Suneel was diagnosed with Duchenne at age 2.5. It was then the mother and full-time primary care physician also became a full-time caregiver.

“Currently, Suneel needs assistance with all activities of daily living,” she said. “He’s in a power chair most of the time. He’s bright, he’s funny, he’s articulate and he wants to be included with everyone else. That’s extremely important to Suneel.”
