JonathansMuscularDystrophyTreatment

On August 23rd, 2011, Jonathan Vargas was diagnosed with Becker's Muscular Dystrophy. Jonathan was informed by his doctors that by age 30 he would lose his ability to walk. The disease will progress from there, ultimately taking his life. 

When Jonathan was growing up he was very athletic. He would play basketball, swim, run, and ride his bike. Today Jonathan can no longer do these activities, which he enjoyed to do.  Before his diagnosis, Jonathan was working as an electrician. However, his condition would no longer allow him to work. 

Upon his diagnosis, his doctor stated that there was no cure for his condition. Jonathan's family members took matters into their own hands and decided to do research. They came across stem cell therapy. 

We are raising money to purchase the stem cells needed to save Jonathan's life. All money raised will go directly to his treatment. Any money raised over the goal will go towards treating someone else suffering from a  life threatening illness. 

If you can find it in your heart to donate any amount at all, it will be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
