has duchene muscular dystrophy. tonight i’d like to tell you more about kristin who – like many moms does everything she can so her son lives life to the fullest. + kyle was an active child, but the disorder confined him to a wheelchair when he was in elementary school. he doesn’t have use of his legs but that hasn’t stopped him from doing a lot of the things teenagers enjoy. like going to prom or joing the band. his mom, kristin wouldn’t have it any other way. she fought the el paso school district to allow him a service dog at school – and won! she also fought for kyle – who played the euphonium in the coronado marching band -to go on a trip to the nation’s capitol – and won! she says every day is a blessing and opportunity to make memories. kyle knows his limitations, but for kristin the sky’s the limit to grant any wish on her son’s bucket list. so this weekend they headed to los angeles. kyle and his mom love to dance and before going off to college this year, the two had a ritual – watching abc’s dancing with the stars and dancing. and when his illness restricted his movements, they improvised. so kristin found a way to get her son to a performance.. heres a picture of kyle – in a tux – his sister katelyn and mom as they headed to the studios! the three were in the audience for week five of “dancing wit the stars”.. Before the show Kyle got on the dance floor…how cool was that? several people made kyles wish come true including kvia – who got him prime seats to monday night’s fan favorite performance. in at 51:10 This is an example of how television helps bring people together, and in this case it’s the bond between a mother and her son and we are so happy that with a little bit of help from abc 7 we were about to help create that memory of them together watching Dancing with the Stars. kristen cox… living life.” tonight’s dancing with the stars episode was “disney night”. an like the song says: when you wish upon a star, anything your heart
