As parents it is difficult to watch our son go through so much (IVs, pokes, transfusions, ER visits, steriod side effects, tests, ect.), but the resilience and toughness Elton shows each day is what gets us through.

Never give up on something that you can’t go a day without thinking about.

Natalie – 9 years
I am here. I am in the present tense. I’m not always here, and sometimes here is a very difficult place. Sometimes it is a labyrinth, or a Minotaur, or a rope I can neither let go of nor follow. It’s hard to find the right words, but I guess I would say that it’s something like feeling the floor. And that it is my privilege to feel it. -Meg Howrey

DBA has affected our lives in ways we could have never imagined. It has introduced us to the most amazing people – from the dedicated doctors to the wonderful families who are also dealing with DBA. They all exemplify the power of human spirit and are family.

I will not let DBA define me, I will let it strengthen me.
