Biography

Alexander was born a healthy baby When he wasn't walking or making chatty noises and not reaching the usual milestones as he baby sister was born when he was around two she was doing more than he was at the similar age we knew something wasn't right we spoke to our health visitor about are worries that he wasn't developing in the same way his sister was we thought that it was autism we went to lots if speech and language therapy at the local hospital and then we got an appointment to see a paediatric doctor who took blood tests, then unfortunately his grandmother died due to cancer and a month later his little sister also died a month after her funeral, we had an appointment about his blood test results and he was diagnosed with Duchenne muscular dystrophy and his and out lives changed dramatically as his life expectancy is in his 20s, we were all devastated we now have regular appointments at Great Ormond Street Hospital around 3 years ago Alexander stopped walking as he found it painful to keep walking he attends a special needs school which he has done since around 4 and a half he also has to use a cough assist machine as he has lost a lot of muscle strength and is unable to cough and this muscle loss has to continued to effect his upper body also He finds lots of difficulty in playing with his toys he does adapt but many times he just needs help from both me and his dad .
