Jeno is a 5 year old boy with Myotubular Myopathy. Most of the times he is a very happy boy, but sometimes, when he realises he is different from his older brother and friends, he feels sad about his weak muscles. Jeno likes to join in with games played by his friends, but sometimes they laugh when he runs as hard as he can but falls and can’t get up without help. And, sometimes, when Jeno coughs in the morning it worries him as he thinks he is going to get pneumonia again and have to stay in hospital.
