Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy Took My Son

Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy took the life of my son John Anthony Scaglione in June 26th at 10:46am. He was 26 years old. Way too young. We are devastated. Our hearts are broken. The past 2 years we have charged everything medical did not cover, we tried to help my son enjoy the last year of his life. We are in over our heads and I’m trying to pay down some of the debt, then I will try to refinance so we don’t loose our home. Please help us, thank you.
