In recent years, I was diagnosed with facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy, or FSHD, a genetic disorder that leads to the weakening of skeletal muscles. It affects an estimated 1 in 8,000 individuals –– everyone differently, but over 70 percent of patients experience debilitating pain and fatigue. There is no treatment or cure — yet. Breakthroughs in research are happening at a rapid pace.
Team Adams is hosted by Paul and me and we invite you to join us on Saturday, September 14. We'll have a great time walking and talking in support of a cure.
If you're curious about FSH, please visit fshsociety.org. If you want to be on Team Adams, please register as a walker on our team. If you just want to throw your support toward our goal by making a donation, we couldn't be more grateful.
Thank you to all my family and friends who support me in too many ways to count! - Laura
