Wow, I had no idea that muscular dystrophy affects men more than it affects women. Maybe that's why you don't really hear about it in the media too much?
I feel like most of the focus in the media these days is breast cancer and other illnesses that affect women. Not that I think raising money for breast cancer is a bad thing, but there are other diseases (like muscular dystrophy for example) that people should pay attention to as well.
It sounds like muscular dystrophy really alters a persons quality of life. Not to mention the fact that some forms of this disease are fatal! But somehow, I've never heard of a walk for muscular dystrophy or seen any products being sold with proceeds going to muscular dystrophy research. Very unfortunate.
