Giving Children The Freedom To Walk, Talk And Play At Camp MDA

“For one week a year, he gets to be with kids like him,” mentions Matthew’s mom, Laura. Matthew has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, and we’d like to send more children like him to MDA Summer Camp.

The freedom to walk, to talk, to run and play. To laugh, to hug. To eat. To breathe. Each day these freedoms are taken away from kids and adults with muscular dystrophy.

Below is a letter from Matthew’s mom, a Boilingbrook local.

"My son, Matthew, has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD). DMD is a progressive muscle wasting disease that has impacted him since he was a toddler. He is a normal kid in every sense of the word except that his muscles are too weak to support him walking and standing anymore. He loves video games, fast cars, girls and “hiking” on the trails by our home.

Matthew has been attending MDA Summer Camp since he was six years old. It is one of the highlights of his summer. He gets to be in a setting where he doesn’t stand out. He gets to play games, make new friends and participate in lots of cool activities that are modified for kids like him."
