Thank you for visiting. This cause is very dear to me, and I'll appreciate all the support I can get! Together we can make a difference!
On April 22nd, 2017 I have joined the Movin' n Shakin 5K walk run, with a great team, in order to raise funds and awareness to support the research mission for Secondary Dystonia at MCV. This will be the 3rd year we created team, this year all funds will be directed to my parents legacy, The Cadieux Fund for Secondary Dystonia at the Medical of Virginia Foundation.
In partnership with MCV we can make a difference and stop this muscle disorder, Secondary Dystonia, that has no cure, little awareness, and much needed research. We need you.
I have two ambitious goals – first to complete the walk and second to meet my personal goal and overcome the challenges of this muscle disorder, Secondary Dystonia, for which you know there is not cure. With the strength, hope, courage, and faith that I have been given by the wonderful staff at PMDC, most of all a promise to my mom to never give up, I will press for awareness, research, and a cure.
As many of you know, this is a personal cause for me. Since being diagnosed with Secondary Dystonia my life has never been the same since. My loved ones have also struggled. Secondary Dystonia affects people in many different ways and affects many more people than you might imagine. I struggle with this battle every single day. Currently, there is no cure for this perplexing neurological movement disorder, which is why your help and support means so much. One day we will have this beat, but until then please join hands with our team to end this what I have named my ” body invader”.
