Tonya Dreher and Gus

My name is Tonya Dreher and I am the director of the Hope for Gus Foundation and Gus’ mom. When Gus was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy 5 years ago, the doctors told us there was nothing we could do. But we refused to believe that was true. We fight for his life everyday and Everest to End Duchenne is my way of pushing myself to do something that will be difficult for me, but impossible for my boy to ever do, because of DMD.
