This fundraiser began in an effort to support a cause near and dear to my own heart, as my daughter was born with a rare disease called Nemaline Myopathy for which there is limited treatment and no cure. There is research being done in cutting edge technology such as genome editing and precision medicine which may one day help treat diseases that inflicted my daughter and many others.
This year we will also be honoring my father, Barry John Lucas, who passed away this January on his birthday. My dad was disabled suffering severe vision impairment that made his life full of challenges to overcome. It is through my daughter and father’s strength that I have learned the power of perseverance, a will to overcome obstacles and the strength of a connected network of family and community. Together we can overcome the perceived limitations of these disabling diseases. Thank you for your continued support and love.
