Betty knows firsthand how physically demanding muscular dystrophy can be. But she helps her children when they need it the most.
Another challenge her family faces is the physical demand that comes with raising a son with muscular dystrophy. This is where Betty silently thanks her years of being an athlete in school and for her natural height. While two of her sons are fully able to get around without much assistance, her 12-year-old son Max has a little more of a challenge. He often carefully maneuvers himself on the stairs with both of his hands on the railing. But, his mom helps him out whenever she can when he is unable to move himself around.
