The money I'm raising by participating in this Walk & Roll is supporting programs and funding research that will directly impact patients and their families living with FSH Muscular Dystrophy (FSHD).

Facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy, or FSHD, is a genetic disorder that leads to the weakening of skeletal muscles. It affects an estimated 1 in 8,000 individuals. It affects everyone differently, but over 70 percent of patients experience debilitating pain and fatigue. There is no effective treatment or cure at this time; however, research is being done every day to bring us closer to a higher quality of life for those affected.

My mom, Anne, has been living with FSHD for quite some time now. Although she never complains, every day she deals with constant aches and pains and a worsening ability to get around. What she lacks in physical strength, she more than makes up for by being the most mentally and emotionally tough person I know!

Please visit the FSH Society website (fshsociety.org) to learn more about FSHD, ways to get involved, and everything that is happening!

Thank you for your support!
