When six-year-old Dale Ginder kept inexplicably falling to the ground while playing with his soccer team, his parents immediately sought medical attention.
After a series of tests, Dale was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy which is a progressive disease that robs boys of the use of their muscles and eventually their lives.
While helping in the search for a cure, Dale’s parents are doing their best to make his life as normal as possible, for as long as possible. This requires an endless routine of painful muscle stretches and equine assisted therapy.
No longer able to play sports, Dale at least tries to keep up with his older brother in activities around the house. Unfortunately, he tires quickly and is then forced to the sidelines again.
It is expected that Dale will be confined to a wheelchair within five years.
