Carmela’s Stand Up to Muscular Dystrophy

Carmela and her family are taking on a new fundraising challenge, an epic 2000km in search of Carmela’s favourite superhero: Wonder Woman. Carmela and mum Lucy will be doing 300km in 30 days and you can support them as they take on the distance by donating to their JustGiving page.

Carmela is a very happy, bright and funny little girl with a zest for life but she struggles with daily obstacles. She has L-CMD, a progressive muscle-wasting condition which unfortunately will affect her heart and lungs and she will most likely not make adult life.

Carmela enjoys the fast lane such as whizzing down the hills on the back of mummy’s bike and being as active as possible doing fast funfair rides. She is very sociable and is always smiling – pretty much anything excites her! Having said that, there are days she gets upset because she can’t keep up with her friends or she is fed up of falling over.

As a family we want to help Carmela and other children with L-CMD to stay strong and fight for a cure but we need the help of others to make this happen.

We have set up this family fund to raise money for research into L-CMD. Will you join us and stand up to muscular dystrophy?
