As some of you may recall, I have a neuro-muscular disability called Charcot-Marie-Tooth Disease, CMT for short. My daughter also has it. For that reason, my husband and I belong to the CMT Association, which is leading the race for a cure. Each year, we take part in the annual Walk 4 CMT in September to raise funds for critical research.

Dallas Walk 4 CMT 2017

Yesterday, I received an email from our branch leader announcing the results:

THANK YOU all for being a part of the Dallas Walk 4 CMT 2017! Each of you are an integral part of our success. . . .

YOU helped make the Dallas Walk 4 CMT a tremendous achievement. This year, a record 110 people took part in the festivities at South Lakes Park and together we raised over $9,600 for the CMTA towards ending CMT! We could not have done it without you. Cheers!

Nationally, the Walk has raised close to $160,000, and still growing. Hooray!

  3. Lyn, l knew you had a muscular disability, but know more about it after reading your blog. I admire your courage and positive attitude dealing with such a difficult illness. It certainly hasn’t stopped you from using your hands to write award winning books, several that I have enjoyed reading!

    • Thank you, Cheri. I’ve lived with CMT most of my life and, while it has progressed to a point where I can’t do things I used to do, it’s just part of who I am. As long as I can still hunt and peck on my keyboard, I won’t let it get me down.
