Cade was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy in May of 2008. This is a progressive and degenerative illness that affects every muscle in the body. Cade is unable to walk long distances and relies on a stroller or wheelchair for mobility. He also needs braces at night.
Cade had a wonderful time on his trip to the Florida theme parks. He visited the Magic Kingdom, Universal Studios and Sea World. It was a dream come true for such a special young boy!
