Muscular Dystrophy is a devastating neuromuscular disorder which weakens and wastes the muscles. The most common form is Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy which mainly affects boys. Onset of this condition is between 3 and 5 years of age and the disorder progresses rapidly with most boys completely dependent on an electric wheelchair by their early teens. Life expectancy for this disorder is usually only early twenties. There is no treatment, there is no cure and no boy survives.
