GOSHEN, Ind. — Lisa Crawford wasn’t looking for a handout when she stopped by the College Avenue Fire Station last February. She wanted to let the firemen know about the upcoming Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) Muscle Walk and hoped they might donate a little to help find a cure.

Ever since her 9-year-old son Brendon was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, a 100 percent fatal disease, Lisa has been on a quest to see that a cure is found before she loses her son.
