Join us for a networking mixer "Cure For Kayla" in Sacramento, CA to raise awareness and funds for myotonic dystrophy

Sacramento Community Connection(SCC),, a local networking group in Sacramento, CA presents "Cure For Kayla", a fundraising mixer to support the Myotonic Dystrophy Foundation, a patient advocacy group dedicated to education, advocacy and research for myotonic dystrophy, a common form of muscular dystrophy that can affect infants, children and adults. This event is in honor of Rocklin, CA’s 3 1/2 year old Kayla Vittek, who lives with congenital myotonic dystrophy, this devastating neuromuscular disease that was present at Kayla's birth. Please come and support this great cause and help so many families living with myotonic dystrophy.

Kayla’s long time nurse and family friend, David Alvis, told Kayla’s story to a friend, Kelly Grady, who runs a gift basket business called Basket Works & Beyond - Kelly shared Kayla’s story at one of the SCC networking meetings and it struck a chord for everyone in the room. The group decided to host their annual fundraiser for 2009 in honor of Kayla. Our family is blessed to have our lives touched by so many wonderful, caring and supportive people in the Sacramento region. Thank you SCC!
