Specialty Pharmacy Fights Muscle Diseases

Apr 20, 2015

Benzer Pharmacy, joined forces with the community to raise funds in the largest, most inspiring event of its kind, MDA Muscle Walk in Orlando, Florida on Saturday April 18, 2015. The event is aimed at bringing communities together to fight back against muscle disease.

The Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) is the world’s leading nonprofit health agency dedicated to finding treatments and cures for muscular dystrophy, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and other neuromuscular diseases.

The funds raised through Muscle Walk support MDA’s life-enhancing programs, including state-of-the-art clinics and support groups. They also make MDA summer camp possible, so kids with muscle disease can enjoy. 

Benzer Pharmacy joined Logan, one of the many children with a terminal disease. Logan has a terminal disease called Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, which will destroy all the muscles in his body: legs, arms, lungs, and heart. 

“Imagine having your child ask you to put his arms around your neck because he cannot hug you himself anymore,” says Jamie Liberty, a Pharmacy Technician at Benzer Pharmacy located at 1426 S. Pine Ave, Ocala, FL 34471. Jamie signed up and built a team to help raise funds for the Walk.

Funds raised through the Muscle Walk program build on decades of research progress, helping push science to its limits in the search for treatments and cures.

This is an event to make connections with other families who are all committed to the same goal. The event also Inspires hope that, working together, can help our loved ones and all people with muscle disease face the challenges muscle disease brings, maintain independence and live the best possible lives.

Whenever there is a need in the community, Benzer Pharmacy strives to step forward and lead the way to a better, happier and healthier tomorrow. Get Better with Benzer!
