My name is Mélanie, I am 33 years old and I live in the South-East of France.
When I was 4 years old, I was diagnosed with Muscular Dystrophy of Unknown Type via two muscle biopsies, after an odyssey, going from doctor to doctor. Yes, I showed symptoms quite early on, when I was about 1 year old. Walking on all fours - mission impossible! And then I couldn't get up from the ground, I would fall head first every time I tried to climb the stairs. Despite my football calves, I was never able to run, my legs were too weak.
