Simple words cannot express how thankful my family is for Muscular Dystrophy Canada, and how they have impacted our son's life. Our son has Duchenne muscular dystrophy and has progressed to the point where he was unable to use his manual wheelchair any longer. He would get fatigued easily and needed to be converted to a fully powered chair. The mounting costs of changes needed to accommodate his condition had us looking for financial help to assist with covering the cost of his new chair. Muscular Dystrophy Canada stepped up in a big way, and helped our family fund his chair. He couldn't be happier about his new-found independence. He loves to go out with his siblings cruising in his new chair. It also enables him to have more freedom at school, and as a parent we couldn't be happier that this change was possible with the funding from wonderful organizations such as yours. Thank you so much for the continued support.
