Nicholas LaDuca is a 17 year old young man in New York who is living with the debilitating effects of Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD). I don't know Nick personally, but I know his sister, Nicole. She is also my son's half sister. She was 4 years old when my son was born and that was also the last time I saw her. In the early part of February 2009, thanks to Facebook, I was able to reconnect with Nicole. We saw each other in New York last September for the first time in 21 years. She is a remarkable young woman. Currently, Nicole has undertaken a fundraising project to help her family improve the quality of Nick's life as his disease progresses. The family is in immediate need of a stair lift for their home and a wheelchair accessible van.
Please take a few minutes and visit the Nicholas LaDuca website and the NickLDFund Facebook page to read more about this appeal.
