I'm walking for our daughter Hayley and all those affected by neuromuscular diseases

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

I'm walking in the MDA Muscle Walk this year because I want to do something meaningful this year and I hope to have your support. Our daughter Hayley has a form of Muscular Dystophy called Charcot Marie Tooth.  It is a disease that causes muscle weakness and atrophy in the feet, legs, and hands.  She was diagnosed when she was 5 years old. She currrently wears braces on her legs to help her walk and run. We are excited about the current research for CMT and the possibility of developing treatments and finding a cure. I chose MDA because of all the incredible things they do for the families they serve in our community, including ours!

Please watch our video to the right to learn a little more about CMT.

Thank you for your support!!

Make a Muscle. Make a Difference.
