Here is a list of LGMD subtypes. Type 1 LGMDs are dominantly inherited, requiring only one mutation for symptoms to result. Type 2 LGMDs are recessively inherited, requiring two mutations — one from each parent — for symptoms to appear. Sometimes, LGMDs are referred to by their names, not their numbers, and some types have not been assigned numbers.

This isn't a picture of me or my son, it's just the picture shown on the site from the Muscular Dystrophy Association.  What you will find on this page, is a description of my oldest son's disease.  He is my hero, and has taught me so much about grace, courage, and living life to its fullest.  I will miss him so much when he's gone.  Words fail to honor what his short life will mean to me.
