Westley’s Warriors

Westley; 1st day of school

I want to welcome you all to Westley’s Warriors! Thanks to my Uncle Todd we have this great website to keep our friends and family updated on all that is going on in our lives.

If you aren’t aware Westley was officially diagnosed with Muscular Dystrophy on September 1, 2010. Westley was finally fed up with always being the slowest and not being able to do what the other children do. At our regularly scheduled check up in August he talked to the doctor about it and after a slew of questions to me and exercises for Westley he referred us to a neurologist to have him checked for muscular dystrophy. We immediately made contact with the local MDA and made a lifelong friend named Ashley who got us a clinic appointment with the Children’s Hospital. The appointment was overwhelming; lots of information and so many specialist looking over our first born. We are now a member of the MD community; what that truly means we are not sure. I will tell you that every person from the nurses, phlebotomist, doctors, physical therapists, liaisons etc have been PHENOMENAL! We couldn’t be in better hands and we Thank God for that.

This will not be an easy road for any of us but we are determined to make the best life for both Westley and Wyatt!

We hope and pray that you will become a “Warrior for Westley”

God Speed,

Dallas and Jessica
