A Note From John

Hello friends! Thank you for visiting our site. The work of my Foundation is designed to help those who are living with Muscular Dystrophy reach their full potential in life, and to give back to society. I have had Muscular Dystrophy since birth and I have been extremely blessed throughout my life with the kindness of others. I am thankful to have been given numerous opportunities to succeed over the course of my lifetime. I started the Foundation so that others living with Muscular Dystrophy may have a chance to experience life as I have. Thank you for visiting our site and please lend us your support! – John
