Lincoln is 8 years old and spends a lot of his time trying to keep up with his younger sister and brother! He loves playing with them even though it tires him out.
Lincoln was diagnosed with Duchene Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) at 2 years old. DMD is a debilitating genetic condition that causes a gradual loss of muscle function affecting everyday movements and activities.
It is seen more often in boys than girls, and usually leads to wheelchair use by their teenage years if not before. Historically, children with DMD did not survive beyond their late twenties although thankfully some are now living significantly longer.
