Check out our Duchenne Journey and learn how we have been living thru the journey and helping find the CURE!!!!!

Hello, my name is Cheryl Markey and my son is Adam ( he is 23 yrs. old and has Duchenne ), since learning of his diagnosis back in 1990 while living at Myrtle Beach A.F.B he represented MDA as a State Poster Child, while there we did the Annual Jerry Lewis Telethons in Columbia and Charleston, we attended many events and fundraisers, we helped raise awareness and funds for the CURE! While living in SC I also was helping raise awareness and funds here in Maine ( where family and friends live ). Returning back to Maine in 1991 to bring Adam closer to family, Adam once again represented MDA as a State Poster Child and following years as a Goodwill Ambassador. Each year we head to WABI-TV Channel 5 News in Bangor to answer phones, make a check presentation and appear live on tv for a interview. We still are spreading awareness about MD and raise funds for the needed research. You can check my profile out under Facebook....where I keep in touch with Par Furlong ( Pat and myself were both nominated for Nancy Grace's 2008 Extraordinary Parent Contest, by our family and friends....even though neither of us were chosen to be the winner, I feel we both are winners with what Pat has done in a big way and what I have managed to do in small ways to help spread awareness and raise funds for the CURE!!! ).Someday I hope to meet Pat in person. Also, you may check out my profile under MySpace.
Back in June 2006 Adam needed something to do with his life, after isolation set in after he graduated from high school in June 2004. We decided to become Independent Home Interiors Decorating Consultants, as Adam loves to decorate!!!! We decided to use our business to support Duchenne MD research, by donating 50% of our profits to support MDA. Six months into being with Home Interiors Adam and I were nominated for "Service With A Heart Award", at the 2007 Home Interiors Seminar in Texas to celebrate their 50th Anniversary.....Adam and I were named, honored and recognized with this award!!!!
This year we will be starting up "Scents For Duchenne" - where each month a different scent of candle will be chosen for individuals to purchase to support PPMD!!!! And we will be donating 75% of our profits thru the candles that are sold to PPMD in 2009!!!!

Please go to: and place your order today......and spread the word to your family and friends.
This fundraiser is not sponsored by Home Interiors is soley sponsored by Adam and I.

Thank you for your time,
Cheryl and Adam

Wow, Cheryl, wonderful idea. Who does not like candles?
Please feel free to share this with everyone you know ( even outside of PPMD )......I would like to keep the flame glowing till the CURE is found for our boys!!!!

Example of how to share this with everyone you know!!!
Will you help me keep the flame glowing for our boys till the CURE is found, by purchasing your candle today and sharing about this exciting New Fundraiser "Scents for Duchenne" to everyone you know !

Also, on my site: - you can check under fundraising and see the Natl. Office Fundraiser Flyer and you can do your own fundraiser in your community by asking ( family, friends, teachers, classmates parents, co-workers, church family, everyone you know ) to support your cause and donate what you raise to PPMD under your families name!!!! This is a simple fundraiser to do, compare it to just like GirlScouts selling cookies, BoyScouts selling their popcorn, etc.

Thank you,
