Imagine - Receiving an Unexpected Diagnosis


A child, your healthy child, Diagnosed with FSH Muscular Dystrophy: Shock, confusion--

Dreams, plans, future Changed, obstructed, gone.
It could happen to anyone -- Any child, any grandchild, anyone.

Random chance chooses....One-quarter of those with FSH

A future life altered by chance alone.
A miscue, a misstep when chromosomes divide; the fetus grows, the hidden problem revealed

Muscles weaken, abilities decrease
Opportunities evaporate
Life changes forever.

But we can make a difference
Give hope, restore Dreams and plans, Renew hope for the future
With research.
