The Hightowers, Evan, Belinda and their two boys Blake and Aaron live in McComb, MS and both of their boys have Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. Blake and Aaron have been wheelchair bound for the majority of their lives. Evan and Belinda own Wizard Electronics in Summit, MS. Wizard is a small 12-volt and CI company that has been in business for the past 20 years. Helping his boys live life to the fullest, Evan has not been able to attend any our industry's trade shows for the past 13 years. Both boys have already been on their Make-a-Wish Foundation Trips but the family is in need of several medical devices for their home and van (that are expensive) that would make the family's day-to-day lives much easier. Insurance does not cover these devices so The Big Show wants to do what we can. We have set up a donation page for the Hightower family (http://www.parentprojectmd.org/
“Wizard Electronics has been an account for years and I’ve seen the struggles that the Hightower family have gone through. Running a business and taking care of two disabled boys has been extremely tough over the years for Evan and Belinda and the struggle has not gotten any easier. Aim High just wants to do it’s share by bringing them to the forefront of our Big Show in March to let the industry have the chance to help one of their own.” Stated Scott Johnson, Regional Sales Manager.
About Duchenne and Parent Project MD
Duchenne muscular dystrophy is the most common fatal genetic disorder diagnosed in childhood, affecting approximately 1 in every 3,500 live male births (about 20,000 new cases each year). Because the Duchenne gene is found on the X-chromosome, it primarily affects boys; however, it occurs across all races and cultures. Duchenne results in progressive loss of strength and is caused by a mutation in the gene that encodes for dystrophin (http://www.parentprojectmd.org/
Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy (PPMD) is the largest most comprehensive nonprofit organization in the United States focused on finding a cure for Duchenne muscular dystrophy—our mission is to end Duchenne. We invest deeply in treatments for this generation of young men affected by Duchenne and in research that will benefit future generations. We will not rest until every young man has a treatment to end Duchenne. Visit website at http://www.Parentprojectmd.org
