Deb & Doug’s Tip Sheets

Deb and Doug RobinsIf Doug & Deb have learned anything from their journey with Duchenne muscular dystrophy, it is that a good life means mucking in to minimize the barriers to: inclusion, medical and social viability by adopting an attitude of looking outward and giving to the community. With Doug’s help and inspiration, Deb aims to share successes, mistakes and recommendations with other families in a visual and succinct manner.

Much of their content is focused on life with Duchenne muscular dystrophy. However, some information will translate well for other people living with similar neuromsucular conditions. 

Deb and Doug’s perspectives are not to be taken for medical advice and indeed there are a number of interventions and events they have not experienced and will make no attempt to document. Mother and son are voluntary – their work, study, community work, connections with family and obvious restrictions, all get in the way – thus they are very slowly documenting their experiences to share with the community.
