Focus on Dustin

A couple months ago Dustin was diagnosed with a rare disease called Hidradenitis Suppurativa.  This is a chronic skin condition where boil like cysts will unexpectedly grow in the armpit and groin area.  He has had 5 painful cysts since being diagnosed and have had a couple removed already.   Hidradenitis Suppurativa can persist for many years and worsen over time, with serious effects on your daily life and emotional well-being.  Those that know Dustin know that he has had many struggles in life that he has overcame so were hoping to make this one easier on him.   They are currently looking at clinical trials in several different states to help the fight and ease his pain for Dustin and all those suffering with this painful disease.  As a result of this disease, Megan Dustin's mom had to close down her business to spend her time caring for Dustin, taking him to his several Dr's appointments and surgeries.  If you can find it in your heart to help Dustin and Megan out, I know they would greatly appreciate it.
