Alon looks like a normal child. But his body has a terrible and incurable disease.
When Alon was one year old, he could not crawl and showed no signs of being able to walk. After months of treatments and tests, there was a slight improvement, but then the family was informed that Alon was diagnosed with "Duchenne".
"Duchenne" (Duchenne muscular dystrophy) is a degenerative muscle disease, most common and deadly amongst children. This is a genetic disease characterized by the weakening of the muscles.
It is rare that patient diagnosed with "Duchenne" will reach the third decade of his life!
From early on in his life, Alon has been gradually losing his motor skills and his muscular strength, including his heart and lungs. It is a rapidly deteriorating process that leads to respiratory failure and cardiac arrests, the surrender of the body, and death.
