Our son Maddux was born February 4th 2005 in Denver, Colorado. We went into the hospital, expecting to bring home a healthy baby boy, and were baffled when he wasn’t able to breathe or move on his own. We removed him from life support on February 10th 2005. Four months after his death, and autopsy, only then were the doctors able to tell us about his condition. Myotubular Myopathy (MTM1). Please help find a cure for Myotubular Myopathy, so no other parent has to experience the pain and heartache from the death of their precious child with this condition.
