Dear members of this list, (and those we may have left out),

Thank you. You are the ones who "Get it". You really understand us and what we are going through as parents, and as a family. We will save this list forever. One day Evan will read the names of those who helped give him his life back...The beautiful people who stepped out of their lives and difficult economic times, to help save his. You will forever be a part of our family, our life, and our future.

We love you all.
Bill, Kim, Billy and Evan Procko

Diane Lance
You were the one we confided in when first suspecting (over a year before Evan's diagnosis). I will never forget your reaction when you first saw and felt his calves that day at the gym. You calmly told me to have him checked out. I knew you were pretty certain...I could tell. You had plenty of experience. But you were right about something else too...Not knowing is worse than knowing. As a retired Shriner's Hospital nurse, your advice has been invaluable. When Evan was scheduled to have his tonsils removed, your advice to alert the surgeons that we suspected DMD and were awaiting test results, may well have saved his life from the effects of normal anesthesia. We now know that Duchenne boys must have a special type of anesthesia during surgery to avoid serious respiratory complications or even death.
You continue to be a calming comfort to our family, most recently in fact, donating your frequent flyer miles to us, so that we can attend the Cure Duchenne fundraiser/auction in L.A. Thank you Diane.
