We will all be seeing GREEN in our local communities......between Feb. 15 - Mar. 15 ( this is an annual event each
year that MDA does ) " Shamrocks Against Dystrophy " where individuals purchase shamrock mobiles for $1
green and $5 for a gold shamrock and the businesses display them about their location.
I purchased one from everywhere I see them, and I write on my shamrock: Cheryl Markey - In honor of my son Adam MacDonald
who has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, I love you! mom.
Check out Darius Goes West! Darius and the young men he travels with have a video out and the proceeds will
help the needed research to find the CURE for our sons! I have mine already!
Sign up for iGive.com where a certain percentage of your shopping online sales goes to support your favorite
cause which of course is ParentProjectMD!!!!
Also, if you haven't heard the song "Chance of a Lifetime" written and sung by the Christian Band Catchpenny for
our boys, for the organization CureDuchenne to help them raise money also for research to find the cure for our
boys! I have my CD already!
Also, check on my Facebook page and share about what I have going on to help raise funds for (PPMD, MDA and
CureDuchenne ), I have pledged to raise $1,000.00 for each organization by June 30, 2009. I have made a $10.00
donation to each and have challenged everyone that views my page to meet or beat my $10.00 donation!!!! Pat
Furlong knows about this challenge I have going on as we are friends on Facebook!!!!
A good book, ( that will make you cry )...I purchased it already and have read it from cover to the end.....if interested you may have to order it at your local bookstore or online: "The Book of Kehls" written by: Christine Kehl O'Hagan...." A remarkable testament to the power of faith and fortitude. After reading her gripping, don't-you-dare-give-up memoir, you will never see your life quite the same again." "A true story of lifr, courageously told with keen insight, grace, and humor." Christine Kehl O'Hagan describes with humor and grace the ways in which muscular dystrophy shaped the life of her family. From her 1960's childhood growing up under the elevated trains of Jackson Heights, Queens, to leafy streets of a Long Island suburb where O'Hagan later cared for her own two boys-one healthy and one with the disease-she was always surrounded by the ghosts of past victims........I will end here as not to tell too much more.....so, you will be curious and purchase this book. Duchenne touched her life thru many male relatives!
And let's not forget Mattie, you need to purchase a book of two of his poems!
Thank you all for stopping and taking the time to read what I have written,
