Ashton is fighting Duchenne muscular dystrophy. I wish we could scare Duchenne away! If only it was that easy. These photos of Ashton are from the winter of 2012-2013 when he was 6 years old. Although he has both hypotonia and Duchenne muscular dystrophy he had improved control of his hands and arms here after recently starting daily Prednisolone to try and slow his muscle wasting.
