"Darius Goes West"

This afternoon Kaitlyn and I watched a fabulous movie, "Darius Goes West". In this multi-award-winning documentary, 15 year old Darius Weems and eleven of his best friends set off across America with the ultimate goal of getting his wheelchair customized on MTV's Pimp My Ride. Not only does Darius bravely face his own inevitable fate with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, but through his humor and laughter, he sparks a revolution in the lives of everyone he meets! His journey allows him to do things he's never done before, like swim in the ocean, ride in a hot air balloon, and see the Grand Canyon. You know, as a special education teacher, I couldn't make it through this with a dry eye. If you're reading this blog, you need to see this movie!!

Thanks for the shout-out, Denise!! We're trying to sell a million DVDs this year, which would send $17 mill straight to DMD research. We rely on supporters like you spreading the word, cause we can't do it alone! Thanks again!!
