Jerry Lewis MDA Telethon

For as long as I can remember my Mom has watched and donated to the Jerry Lewis telethon every Labor Day weekend. We would sometimes save loose change in a jar all year to donate. My cousin Roman passed away only 5 months ago from Muscular Dystrophy at 19 years old. This year I can't watch more than just a few minutes without breaking down, because the pain of losing Roman is still so strong. Watching the kids and families speak is hard because even though they are struggling with the disease, they still have their kids with them. Please visit the website at www.mda.org, or call 1-800-Fight MD and make a donation.
