Thank you everybody for your support. At this very moment between this fund and the GoFundMe account, we are only $125 short of the $3000 fundraiser goal. Fees so far have been $60 to withdraw funds. So if you add that, it’s $185 plus another $40 or so for the remaining fees.
The success of this campaign has been thrilling. And it has also encouraged me in the desire to turn this into a bigger project.
Based on feedback and advice from others, The Everett and Austin Project needs to be focused on Muscular Dystrophy and Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy in particular.
I think that these are some very basic goals of The Everett and Austin Project:
- Support those who are going through the difficult disease, both the children and also the parents.
- Create more awareness of what Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy is.
- Contribute financially toward Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy research and push toward treatments and a cure
- Helping the poor affected by Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, especially those in 3rd world countries.
Amazingly, this disease affects 1 in 5000 males at birth. Who knew it was so common?
