Albert showed the nation how sheer determination led him to success


PETALING JAYA: In 1999, a young boy named Albert Wong captured the nation’s attention through the pages of this newspaper.

Albert suffered from the muscular dystrophy condition known as Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD). The disease is due to a genetic defect which prevents or slows down the formation of dystrophin in the muscle cells, without which the cells will degenerate.
