The Journey

This Journey for me is personal as My son  David has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. My family has been involved with this cause for 21+ years since my son David's diagnosis at 3 1/2 yrs old . I founded LIUG4MD in 2014 with MD Families in mind so that we could establish an Awareness month. Since I started in 2014, we have achieved so much; the proclamations were just the tip of what I could do to raise awareness for all Muscular and Neuro-muscular diseases. The lighting's came into play in 2015, their purpose to literally shine a #LimeGreen light on all 52 muscular diseases and to benefit MD Families . Thanks to my friend and lighting diva extraordinaire  Tina Digregorio and the Local 926 for their help/support . 2017  49 state/7 city proclamations. 2018 49state/11 cities declared August MD Awareness/LIUG4MD Month  and we were triple  confirmed lighting of  Landmarks Internationally .2019 is set to be even bigger, I can't wait <3
