I'm pumped up about the MDA Muscle Walk.

Welcome to my Muscle Walk Personal Fundraising page!

Help me cross the Muscle Walk finish line and FINISH STRONG!  Join me at the Muscle Walk and we’ll have a great time for a great cause. Better yet, make a donation today, and help me reach my fundraising goal to help support the families who depend on MDA. Together, we grow stronger. 

Make a Muscle. Make a Difference.®     I was diagnosed with muscular dystrophy a few years ago.  It is a constant struggle to deal with but together we can try to make a difference for all families affected by this! Please consider helping in any way you can, thank you!!

 

 About 3 years ago I was diagnosed with Limb-Girdle muscular dystrophy.  It has been a battle every day just to do the normal things in life that we take for granted.  From stepping up onto a curb, to carrying ANYTHING, going up steps, etc. It has really affected both myself and my family.  With this disorder, there is no cure, no way to slow it down and no way to even tell how fast it will progress.  The specific kind that I have affects each individual differently in terms of onset and severity.  Luckily, I can still manage day to day activities but it is inevitable that I will end up in a wheelchair one of these days.  Even though I am NOT looking forward to that, I am still grateful to have the kind that I do as opposed to a more severe kind that has a childhood onset.  We just have to live for the day because we don't know when it could be taken away from us! For these reasons I am doing the MDA walk this year.  Let's help raise money and awareness of MD so that we can work towards creating a cure or even medications to help it!! Thank you for any donation you are able to give, it is truly appreciated by many :)
