I'm Participating in the MDA Muscle Walk!

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


As you all know our son has a muscle myopathy. We as a family have been involved with MDA for 4 years now on fundraising in order to find a cure for the muscle diseases. The MDA of western PA is a great organization, all the funds raised stay local.

Therefore, all the funds we rasied will help all the kids in our area that have a muscle disease. MDA has helped our family personally by loaning Barrett a wheelchair that he can have at his elementary school. Barrett has difficulty making it back and forth down the long hallways. Barrett also wears a back brace 24/7 and ankle/foot braces-he goes to the muscle clinic at Childrens Hospital where his care is followed by Dr Hoda, physical therapist, etc, this care is free to him.  In addition the funds will help him go to the camp this year which is a cost of $800 per child. This will be great for Barrett to experience a camp with other kids with a disability and activities that are made to cater to the kids with muscle disease that he may not otherwise get to do.

As always we are sincerely thankful for all the support of all of our family and friends.

Thank you

Judy B. and Terri
