Prayers for Baby Max

My best mommy friend found out during her last pregnancy that she is a carrier for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. Yesterday, they received the news that their precious baby boy does have DMD. They could use whatever prayers, good thoughts and positive energy you could send their way. He is only 3 months old, and it will likely be a few years before they see any symptoms, but they are starting the process of accepting this news and finding doctors and therapies that will help him.

My friend mentioned wanting to help raise money for MD research, and I'm hoping to help her with that. She obviously has other things on her mind at the moment, but I found a small, grass roots charity that raises money specifically to advance Duchenne treatments and has been pretty successful. If she decides it is a charity they would like to support, I'll be posting here with donation/how you can help information.
