Our Story

Our son Jason was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy at the age of 3 and a half. DMD is a devastating disease, which gradually weakens all muscles in the body. In July 2013 Jason lost his battle with DMD. A boy with very little physical strength has shown us more personal inner strength and courage then we thought possible. As a family we want his strength and courage to carry on.

Jason lived his life by the motto, “I Have Resolve”. We live now by the strength he displayed. We hope that Jason’s message will bring strength and courage to others in life. In particular we look to promote a message of inclusion. Even though Jason was loved immensely in life, we saw him struggle socially. His disability held him back from many social opportunities.

We hope to share his story so that in any small way, we can continue to spread his message. For Jason, “We Have Resolve”

“One of the most beautiful qualities of true friendship is to understand and to be understood. A single rose can be my garden… a single friend, my world!”
