    Hi @karenstar - Welcome to the community, Karen. Might I ask if you're referring to Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy?
    I also have a genetic disorder which is usually transmitted in 50% of pregnancies. All of my children, & all 3 grandchildren have inherited it (Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome)!
    Thank you for joining. Please have a look around, perhaps using the 'All groups' link on the right, & join in with any discussion.
    Please, if you have any questions, just say, as hopefully you'll get some feedback/advice. Also chat or vent here any time!

    A very warm welcome to the Community. Thank you for reaching out to us,  and thank you for sharing, it must be very difficult for you with your condition, I don't know to much about it except that you carry the gene that can cause DMD in your children, is that correct? I'm hoping that we have others on here that may be able to help or advise you.
