MONROE - Thanks to the persistence of one Monroe Middle School class that routinely views a documentary about Darius Weems, a young man with duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD), Weems has decided to pay a visit to Monroe. Darius Weems, 24, was diagnosed with the fatal disease when he was very young but is known for never allowing it to slow him down. He and some friends filmed the documentary "Darius Goes West," about Weems' trip to California to have his wheelchair "pimped out" by the MTV show "Pimp My Ride."
