Rhett was diagnosed with Duchenne's Muscular Dystrophy, as a 3 year old. He survived a cardiac arrest at that time and it was a miracle that we had the next 19 years with him. His family pushed him to the maximum and had every opportunity he could have. Camping with his family was the highlight of his life. He has turned in his wheelchair for wings.
