Baby pictures of our former EIC and a call to action!

OK, technically not *baby* pictures, but I'm reposting this from Jill's Tumblr:

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

For those unaware, muscular dystrophy is a genetic condition that causes your muscles to slowly weaken over time. At first you have trouble walking, but eventually you become so weak you can't even breath. Often this results in a shortened lifespan. I had a friend with MD who lived into his 50s and had to breath through a hole in his throat and "eat" by having Ensure poured though a tube in his abdomen that lead directly to his stomach. There is no cure, and there is precious little in the way of treatment. For nearly 60 years there was an annual Labor Day telethon to raise funds for MD research and care, but this is the first year the telethon will not be held. Please follow the links at the bottom of Jill's post to learn how you can donate and volunteer. Thank you.
