I recently started working for the MDA and I quickly have been effected by how great not only this organization is, but also how wonderful these families are. I have been effected by so many stories and families that I have met over the past two months. The MDA provides services to families suffering from forms of Muscular Dystrophy, (like ALS "Lou Gehrig's" Disease, Deuchene, Becker, SMA, and more). There are 43 forms of MD and over 300 different diagnosis off those.--Some are genetic and start at birth while others can form later in life (SO YOU CAN DIRECTLY BE EFFECTED AT SOME POINT) I am not required to form a team or fundraise, but I want to because I know how much of a difference our organization makes in these families lives and how much it means to them. We cover the cost of clinic visits, support groups, fund research (we are the leader in many of these diagnosis, including ALS), and we send kids 6-17 to a week long camp program (Cost: $800 per camper). This year we have about 160 signed up!!
PLEASE help by making a small donation, or even spreading the word to your friends and family. A little goes a long way!
