Muscular Dystrophy has been a part of my family ever since my younger brother was diagnosed at birth. Muscular dystrophy is a neuromuscular disease that affects muscle cells in the body. Basic freedoms - like walking, talking, eating, and life itself are challenged. In many cases, people born with this disease do not live past a certain age. My brother has gone through life with muscular challenges that most could not imagine. There are different types of muscular dystrophy that affect people in our community. My brother's type of muscular dystrophy as of this day is undiagnosed. Muscle Icon is a community and a family that is dedicating our event this year to raising money for research and is proud to be working with the MDA! Join us this year to help find answers and hopefully a cure for those with muscular dystrophy!
The money I raise will help children and adults in our community, and will also help support innovative research to change the future for people with neuromuscular disease.
I want to personally thank you for your support and donations are greatly appreciated!
