We’re Tom and Angie Wicka, in 2002 we received the dreadful news that our son, Nash, was afflicted with Duchenne muscular dystrophy. DMD is a crippling and cruel disease that typically takes the lives of boys around the age of 20. One year later we created the Nash Avery Foundation (NASH) and the Bash for Nash.
Nash is a little boy. One little boy growing up with all the Indiana-Jones hopefulness and unfiltered, Guitar-Hero abandon of any growing little boy. He is one boy who represents thousands of boys in various stages of this ruthless disease.
Those of us who love Nash are committed to killing DMD, while Nash is simply committed to living more and better and bigger each day.
We can do that for every little boy with Duchenne muscular dystrophy.
