DmdOptions:"The goal of this Web site is to share information with people interested in Duchenne muscular dystrophy. The emphasis is on facilitating informed CHOICES regarding life-style options, treatment options and their attending issues. While doing research for this site, it became apparent that most of the research on aggressive treatment options is not from American researchers. Much of the medical literature referenced here is not even available in English. This puts people with Dmd at a great disadvantage, especially those of us who do not live near the resources of a major medical institution. In other words, a family doctor in a small town does not have convenient access to the latest information on mechanical ventilation, cardiac therapies, steroids, etc."
