Presentation: Duchenne muscular dystrophy; a medicine within a hand’s reach?

Hi! My name is Lieve Caron, seventeen years old, and I currently live in Heemskerk in the Netherlands. I am an avid horse rider, something I have been doing since I was a little three year old girl. I have competed throughout the country, both for fun and competition. Apart from that I am always busy with school, to ensure I can go study medicine in Utrecht without difficulty. I am really looking forward to ICYS and of course to meet you all!
