Hayden mentioned the words “It’s ok to talk” in one of our conversations. These are his words for teens:
“Start planning today because you need to be prepared for tomorrow.
Muscular Dystrophy is not an end, it’s just a different beginning.
You are different, not less.
KIND REGARDS, HAYDEN”
Hayden and Western Wasps teammates put together a short film “Weak Body, Strong Mind” a few years ago. Copies are still available at Rocky Bay Inc, WA.
Hayden mentors young people living with NMD in Western Australia, at Muscular Dystrophy WA Camps, through sports every Wednesday afternoon and on Saturdays, and through many other avenues. Thanks for all your help over the years!
