30 Days of MD: My Son Has an Exciting Life Despite Duchenne
In this 30 Days of MD story, Melissa Hadel writes about her son Brodie. Brodie lives with Duchenne MD and is well accustomed to lengthy appointments and different therapies at a young age. He enjoys traveling and spending time with his family.
Here’s an excerpt: “Brodie is only 7, and he’s already comfortable with needles, doctor’s appointments, weekly hour-long infusions, and twice-a-day slant-board sessions. Soon, he’ll have the stretching casts on his legs for three to six weeks, and he’s already getting comfortable with different physical assistance, including lots of breaks and a wagon we use to pull him around.”
Do you have any takeaways from Melissa and Brodie’s story? Especially if you’re a parent, does this story resonate with you?
