Today, my family and I walked a mile to support CMT Awareness.
My Godfather’s daughter, who is in her thirties and a mother of two, was diagnosed with CMT just a few months ago. Their family lives a little under two hours away from us, and we knew that they were planning a special walk for CMT Awareness today. My mom talked to my Godfather and planned for us to go down this morning as a surprise for his daughter. It turned out to be a great surprise, and we had a great time walking with the whole family… we had blue balloons and blue ribbons pinned on our shirts (blue is the color for CMT Awareness). It was a great day, and everyone got really into the cause. There is no cure for CMT right now, but with support, I’m sure that a cure will be found someday soon.
