Christian Isaac's Story:(4/7/10) Christian is 6 years old and in kindergarten at Madras Elementary. He was diagnosed at the age of 3 with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. He doesn't have a need for special equipment yet - but will as his condition progresses. He loves to play soccer, but tires easily and stairs are becoming a challenge for him. He is finding it harder to stand from a seated position on the floor. He loves the family dog, but has some fear now as the dog bumps him or jumps on him and he is easily unbalanced. He loves to play video games, but rarely has the opportunity to do that. Christian's parents take him to Shriners Hospital every 6 months for re-evaluation.
