Tinley Park, 2010

Collin Betley, 2, shown here with his father Jacob Betley, was diagnosed in December 2009 with Duchenne muscular dystrophy, a rapid form of the genetic degenerative disorder. It affects about 1 in 3,600 male infants. Most patients are confined to a wheelchair by the time they’re 12, according to the National Institutes of Health. Most die before their 25th birthday. The family holds regular fundraisers through http://www.careforcollin.org to help pay for the life of care Collin will need. Patch.com
