To Give Strength to Duchenne
by raising awareness
by raising moneys for research
by teaching and sharing about TRUE Strength
On February 9, 2017, our life was turned upside down when our youngest son Fritz, was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. As we digested such devastating news, we found ourselves feeling weak and helpless. It was in those dark hours and days, that our community came alongside us and gave us strength. We experienced strength like no other, and it involved things like hugs, tears, prayers, hot meals, kind words, special notes, never physical muscle. In those extremely raw days of diagnosis we realized that the word strength needed redefined. Inspired and uplifted, our family birthed and clung to the phrase, ‘Strength Is More Than Muscle.’ A diagnosis of Duchenne does mean Fritz’s muscle will not be work like they should, but we wanted him, and the world to know, that he can be strong, we can be strong, people can be strong because…. STRENGTH IS MORE THAN MUSCLE.
