"No other parent should have to hear to words Muscular Dystrophy again"
That was what my 15 year old cousin Tyler said to the late comedian Jerry Lewis, who has raised over $2.5 billion for the Muscular Dystrophy Association in the US through his yearly telethons, just days before he passed away from Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. His brother, who passed away 5 years earlier at 11 years old from the same disease, made Tyler promise to live to be 15 years old. Tyler did. Not only did he live to be 15 but he became an ambassador for Muscular Dystrophy in his home state of Wyoming and traveled all around for events, appearances and fundraisers to raise money for muscular dystrophy research.
Before Tyler passed away, I promised him that I would carry on his fight to raise money to not only find a cure but to help those afflicted with the disease to live their lives as comfortable as they can
My production company, Dreamscope Media Group Ltd, and through our partnership with Middlesex University, we are putting on a telethon of our own that will broadcast live online for 1 hour on May 10th 2018. This telethon will be the 'grand finale' of our month-long efforts to raise £10,000.00.
Please help us raise money for research to find a treatment for Muscular Dystrophy UK.
Because no other parent should ever have to hear the words 'Muscular Dystrophy' again.
Thank you for your support!
