Muscular Dystrophy

Christian is a 20-year-old boy who is extremely bright and full of life no matter what challenges he
faces. Christian was diagnosed at 5 years of age with CMD.   This is Congenital  Muscular Dystrophy.  Christian has been in a wheelchair since he was 5 years of age.  Christian succeeded in school and graduated12th grade in 2013.  Everyday living with this disease always involves a hurdle. While some hurdles are bigger than others, his strong will and great disposition has helped to overcome them.  Christian continued to grow and reach certain milestones, but has been unable to walk since he was 5.
Christian has dealt with many health issues. Fortunately, he is strong willed and quite a fighter. God has kept him with us. Christian's mother has been taking care of him since he was diagnosed 15 years ago.   She understands how to handle his disease and he is now equipped at home with medical equipment to assist him. One major component of the medical equipment is his ventilator which assists him in breathing while sleeping. 

Christian loves to enjoy life.  He is an angel sent to us from God and as I always say he brings a whole new meaning to life!
