BENEFITING: A FOUNDATION BUILDING STRENGTH INC
EVENT: Cycle For Strength Palo Alto
EVENT DATE: Mar 13, 2016
My good friend's daughter Ava is only 9-years-old. In her short life she has had to face challenges with things that we only take for granted because she faces Nemaline Myopathy. NM is a nueromuscular disorder that causes muscle weakness. Muscle weakness not only makes freedom of movement more tiring, but also can effect the person's ability to eat and breathe. Imagine facing this as a child when all you want to do is run and play.
A Foundation for Building Strength is the only organization that has funded research specifically for Nemaline Myopathy Worldwide. AFBS would like to fund three new research studies this year. These studies will help Ava and many others affected by NM.
Trust me, I am the kind of person that hates asking for money. I wouldn't be asking if this wasn't a very worthy cause. One that will help children worldwide and help little Ava. I know together, even with small amounts, we can make a big difference! Please consider supporting me in my goal to help raise $500 (or more!). Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your support!!
