Duncan and his mother had the opportunity to meet with their Congressman, Representative Jim Cooper, as participants in the Promise to Remember Me initiative. “We have said from day one,” writes his mother, “when he was diagnosed at 16 months old, that was not a weakness in his life, but a point of strength. We are constantly amazed at how he handles the disease.”
