Taby W. knew that something needed to change for her son, AJ. A 13-year-old with Duchenne muscular dystrophy, AJ had become used to saying “I can’t,” and didn’t have many opportunities to connect with kids his own age. When the family became involved with Victory Lane Camp, they discovered a community who accepted and welcomed them.

“The biggest thing was that we feel part of it and included,” Taby said. “There are people out there who do care and do want to help. We deal with so much with AJ’s medical needs that we need something to focus on and to make a difference in our lives.”
