MEET BRANTLEY TAKES
Bentley is a 9-year-old with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD). He was diagnosed when he was 8 years old. We had always noticed he struggled with going up stairs and fell frequently, but we just thought he was a clumsy kid or was different than other kids, never thinking something was physically wrong with him. His school teachers brought up their concerns to us also, so when Bentley had his next well child visit, we asked his pediatrician about it.
Bentley is outgrowing his current bedroom, and this would be a fun surprise for him and our family. We look forward to him having a more comfortable and relaxed bedroom as his DMD progresses.
