Well, I am being arrested this coming Thursday . . . as some of you may know. I am excited to be able to help with this year’s fund-raiser!
This morning I received a letter in the mail from a local family who have a child diagnosed with a form of Muscular Dystrophy.
His family sent me this letter.
I remember the day like it was yesterday, May 2007. The doctor informed us that our baby, P-man, had Charcot-Marie-Toothe Disease, CMT, we were told it is a form of Muscular Dystrophy. From that day forward, we have been to see our doctor once a year through the clinical services the MDA provides. Through this, I have realized how blessed we are. Just to meet our precious son, you would never know he has an illness that could one day be debilitating. I thank God every time we go for an exam that we don’t need the other services MDA provides. I also have the peace of mind in knowing that anything my son should ever need, the MDA is there to help. There are so many families that depend on the money raised for the MDA to provide them with wheelchairs, medial attention, camp for children affected by Muscular Dystrophy, research, etc. . . .
The letter goes on to thank me for participating in the Magnolia area lock-up fund raiser. But what a difference it makes to hear a real-life story and to see a real-life child affected by this disease.
If you are able to donate, please click the button below. You can donate online through the MDA’s secure website. Even just $5.00 would help me reach my goal of $1,200 bail money.
