My son Shane Shriner is 20 years old. He has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. He was diagnose at the age of 5 when he was in kindergarten. When the doctors office called and told us to come in his dr wanted to talk to us. When we sat down in his office and he told us that Shane had DMD. The first thing my husband and I said was. What do you need to take from us and give to him. We had never even heard of this disease. I didn’t know what to do. I did the worst thing ever and got on the internet and started to read about it. I was in shock what I was reading I was very discourage. Doctors app then followed. When he was 9 he got sick and from then on he hasn’t walk. As Shane got older his loved for music grew. He learned to play guitar and drums. He could still play the drums even though he couldn’t walk. He had movement. Just not the strength to walk. He played the drums until 2012. When the bus driver failed to put his seatbelt on in his chair and when she slams her breaks he fell out of his chair and broke his Fibia and tibia. Then no more drums. Just guitar. Up to about 2 years ago he hasn’t played guitar it got harder for him to hold it. His loved for music is still there. He makes beats and records his music and friends. My husband built him a studio for all his music stuff. We always made sure he had a hobby since of course there isn’t any other hobby he can do. Shane is your typical 20 year old young man. He is just confined to a wheelchair. Lately he had been a lil on the downside because he can’t get out of the house especially when we have in-climate weather. He is missing therapy and doctors app and what’s going on around him. That’s why we are determined to get a van to transport him. We currently lift him and put him in his sit in the van and load his chair with 2x6 ramps. He needs to feel as if he is still living outside these 4 walls. We are just a family that takes it day by day. Hoping and praying for our son to live the best life he can.
