Frank and Kelly. As he grew, Tory was obviously having difficulty standing and developing

help and provide some insight into Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.
Tory will be updating his 'Tory Time' page periodically to let you know what he's up to !

friends rallied around, believing the dark cloud of Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy will
part...we will see the blue skies beyond the rainbow where Tory will run toward so many
