Hi my name is T-jay I am 5 years old,
when I was 3 years old I was diagnosed with duchenne muscular dystrophy(dmd). This is a rare condition that affects mainly boys. It's affects around 1 in 3,500 boys at birth so this is very rare.
Duchenne will cause me to eventually lose all of my strength and because dystrophin is absent, my muscle cells are easily damaged.
The Doctors have told us that there is currently no cure for duchenne, so we are all coming to terms with what my future with be.
I am so lucky to have such great parents, family and friends, they all care for me so much, they have all tried to help with my day to day needs. I have to travel up to Newcastle every 3 months for treatment and my parents do so much for me, but its becoming harder as time goes on, eventually I will need things that even my friends and family will struggle to get.
Having DMD means that every year that passes will bring new problems, things the Doctors can't predict.
With your donations it will help the people I love with things I will need, like, equipment, travel, therapy (swimming) or help with day to day activities. With your help my mum, dad, friends and family can enjoy the time we have together, with your help I can enjoy my time with them.
I can't thank you enough for taking the time to read my story, if you donate then thank you again for helping me and my family.
