Sharon Allison and Mollie McKool are among the many DM community members who have grandchildren affected by myotonic dystrophy. The special love they have for these children has moved them to team up with MDF to launch the first-ever Grandparents Campaign to raise funds for DM patient care and research.
The Grandparents Campaign launches on National Grandparents Day, September 8, 2013. Please visit our main Grandparents Campaign site to read stories from Mollie, Sharon, and other community members, and to donate to this campaign. With current advances and impending clinical trials scheduled for 2014, the need for DM research has never been greater.
If you would like more information on the Grandparents Campaign, please contact Aly Galloway, MDF Community Engagement Manager, at 415-800-7640, or send her an email. And from Sharon, Mollie, and the MDF team, thank you!
