MDA Muscle Walk - We need your help!

Family & Friends,

As many of you know, our son Steve III has Congenital Myotonic Muscular Dystrophy. Myotonic Dystrophy is one of the most variable and complicated disorders known and affects about 1 in 8,000 people. Approximately 1 in 20,000 babies are affected from birth with the Congenital form. 

We're proud to tell you that we are participating for the third time in the MDA Muscle Walk on Saturday January 29th, 2011 at Ford Field in Detroit. This is going to be a fun, meaningful way to help the MDA in the fight against neuromuscular disease. Funds raised through MDA special events help provide expert medical care at MDA clinics, MDA summer camps for youngsters, and many more services.  MDA also funds hundreds of top scientists worldwide doing groundbreaking research, seeking treatments and cures. We need your help to find a cure!
We'd like you to join us as a member of our team to help raise funds and come to Ford Field to do the walk together -- we promise we'll have a great time and make a difference!
