MDA Telethon Success!

This year’s MDA telethon raised $58,919,838! That is money that will, among other things, go toward research. Remember $0.76 out of every dollar donated directly benefits people like me in one way or another. We already have an amazing treatment for Pompe Disease, now let’s find more treatments for all the other forms of MD and dare I say… a cure!
Here are some photos from the Orlando telethon…

Welcome to Chapman Leonard Studios in Orlando - September 6, 2010.

No set would be complete without Craft Service.

MDA phone bank filled with happy and dedicated volunteers!

Local members of the National Honor Society volunteered their time to help take pledges. Brains and big hearts!

 Thank you everyone – see you next year!
