Family Friday: When You’re a Carrier
Learning that you are a female carrier of Duchenne can be shocking, overwhelming, and confusing. During our June 26, 2020 Family Friday on Facebook Live, we were joined by a panel of female carriers. We discussed the importance of caring for yourself both physically and mentally, including the theme of resilience and what it means for caregivers of children and adults living with Duchenne.
