My Family

Around 8 years ago I had an accident and could never quite recover from it 100%. My doctor stuck with me for two years and after many test she suggested I have a DNA test which I did. The results came back positive for CMT(CMTX1)...Not only was I diagnosed properly but found out that my dad who we believed to have MS all his life did in reality have CMT. I have a handicapped son who also has CMT which explained a lot of his motor issues. My youngest son just found out about two years ago that he has it as well. We took my grand*daughter to Genetics at Yale and found that she has it too. Our CMT goes from male to female to male etc, etc, etc. Of course there is so much more to our story but thats the basics. I hope this little bit of information my indeed help some one else.Thanks
