Joining Hands with the Medical College of Virginia the supportive physicians, faculty, and staff, contact with, have made a everlasting difference in my life.

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 no cure. With the strength, hope, courage, and faith that I have been given by the wonderful staff at VCU/MCV Movement Disorder Center, most of all a promise to my mom to never give up, an honor for my parent's legacy The Cadieux Fund FBO Secondary Dystonia Research at MCV Foundation. 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 family and friend have also struggled. So many have gained knowledge and supported me with sunshine on those not so sunny days. Secondary Dystonia affects people in many ways and 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."
