MUSCLE DISEASE DAMAGES MUSCLES AND BREAKS HEARTS...

Reportedly, over one million individuals in the United States are affected by neuromuscular disease. Neuromuscular disease robs an individual of their ability to complete basic muscular movements; such as, walking, talking, eating, and breathing. These diseases keep our prominent research centers and doctors at hold, resulting in life altering circumstances and death. Although we currently can not take the disease from our fathers, mothers, sons, and daughters, we relentlessly work to provide accommodations to ease the burden muscle disease may cause on our affected families.
