Join my family for our first muscle walk!
Please help us cross the finish line and FINISH STRONG together as a team.
Andrew and Matthew has Becker Muscular Dystrophy (BMD). It is a progressive genetic muscle disease primarily affecting voluntary muscles. At this point, Andrew is more affected then Matthew. The disease is progressively deteriorating their muscles, which makes it hard for them to walk long distances, climbing up the stairs, and it limits them to certain physical activities. The things we do without thinking twice is a struggle for them. They may face respiratory and heart problems and may need assistive devices to help them get around. There is still no cure, so we are at a race against time.
Through your support and donation, you are not only helping the MDA raise awareness, and provide funds for research for treatment to maximize the person's quality of life, but you will also provide hope to families like mines, that there will be a cure.
Please join me and my family to fight muscle disease, and help raise funds and awareness to support MDA. 100% of the funds we raise will go directly MDA and your donation is tax deductible. MDA is the nations largest voluntary health agency that is dedicated to funding cutting-edge neuromuscular disease research, healthcare services, summer camp, support groups, and education.
It will mean so much to us, especially to Andrew and Matthew if you can join us in this fight for a cure. Once you join our team "The Defenders" You can make a donation and set a fundraising goal for yourself to help us. Remember no amount is too little.
Don't wait another minute to think. Help us build a stronger community of supporters!
Make a Muscle. Make a Difference.®
