Family asks for support during telethon
Our family wants to take a moment to ask the people of North Alabama to tune into the Jerry Lewis Telethon to benefit the Muscular Dystrophy Association this Labor Day weekend.
As the parent of two children with neuromuscular disease, I know firsthand the valuable assistance provided by MDA to people with more than 40 neuromuscular diseases. Support groups, financial help with medical equipment and the MDA clinic at Huntsville Hospital are just a few of the important services MDA offers. Most important of all is MDA's ongoing search for cures and treatments through its aggressive research programs, which makes exciting progress every day.
The telethon will be broadcast Sept. 1 beginning at 8:30 p.m. and continuing through Sept. 2 on WHNT News Channel 19, or it can be seen on the Web at www.mdausa.org.
Thank you in advance for watching and supporting this cause. It means the world to people right here in North Alabama.
