Believe it or not, I'm going to jail and I need your help. While it's not a real jail, it's even more important as I'm raising bail to help children and adults with muscle disease in my community who are supported by the vital work of the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA).

I am raising funds for families in the Tampa Bay area living with ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease. MDA is the worldwide leader in ALS research to find a cure.

Local families are seen at the ALS Clinic at Sarasota memorial Hospital. Please take a look at the great work that is done there with Dr. Greg Hanes as he is consulting with a local MDA family in the video.

Donations will help in the fight against muscular dystrophy by providing funding for the following MDA initiatives:

  • Clinics-expert specialized medical care
  • Research - cutting-edge investigation into treatments and cures
  • Support - help obtaining equipment and coping with challenges

My bail will support a local family for a full year of MDA services! I might not be able to rely on good behavior to get out so that's why I need your help - I need you to donate to my bail! Just click on the donation button to make a secure donation - I know that together we'll Make a Muscle and Make a Difference in the fight against muscle disease.

Thank you so much for your support.
