My brother Joe was one born with Muscular Dystrophy. He is now years old. It wasn’t until last year that we were finally able to find out what exact type of muscular dystrophy he has. Joe also has lost a couple of his friends this past year from this disease. These are friends he met in the MDA summer camp he enjoyed going to every summer when he was younger. Today, Joe spends all his days in his room, because that’s all the strength that he has left. Most of that time is spent on his breathing machine to help him take deeper sufficient breaths, or being auctioned because he can’t clear his airway well. He’s not able to eat much, and when he cant, a breathing tube is forced down his nose to provide him the nutrition his frail body needs. All in all, Joe is just like you and I in that he has a huge heart, with life desires and goals, and would like the support from people like you to help this foundation find a cure.
