I'm Participating in the MDA Muscle Walk!

I'm participating in the MDA Muscle Walk and I need your help!

I'm walking in the MDA Muscle Walk again this year in honor of my father Don Wagar who has Friedreich's Ataxia.  Friedreich?s ataxia (FA) is a debilitating, life-shortening, degenerative neuro-muscular disorder. About one in 50,000 people in the United States have Friedreich's ataxia.  Signs and Symptoms of FA are loss of coordination (ataxia) in the arms and legs, fatigue - energy deprivation and muscle loss, vision impairment, hearing loss, and slurred speech, aggressive scoliosis (curvature of the spine), diabetes mellitus (insulin - dependent, in most cases), a serious heart condition (enlarged heart - hypertrophic cardiomyopathy).  At this time there is no cure for the disease.  My father is my hero, my rock - and it has been devastating watching him decline and fight for everything that most of us take for granted.  Something as simple as pouring yourself a drink, walking etc takes a huge effort for him.  Please help me in raising money to help people with this and other muscular diseases.  Any and all donations are greatly appreciated!  Thank you!

Make your muscles work for something good. Please sponsor my effort with a donation.

Make a Muscle. Make a Difference.
