The Mackay brothers
My name is Dylan, I am 14 and I have 2 younger brothers. Both boys have been diagnosed each with a rare genetic condition. One has congenital myasthenia syndrome, my youngest brother has Muckle Wells syndrome.
Both boys need help and I am grateful for being the big brother they need. Wether it’s helping to carry them, helping mum lift the electric wheelchair in and out of the car, helping mum and dad giving daily injections and learning myself how to do it, hugging them if they feel sad or feel unwell., shielding them from COVID even though it meant isolating as a family, we are a team and together we have to be strong. Really grateful for the young carers network as I know I’m not alone in this and I was able to do some things for myself.
