Bryan Steward, who lives with Becker muscular dystrophy, set out to hike the 500-mile Camino de Santiago in Northern Spain last month. As he nears the end of his journey, he checked in again with us to update us on his progress. Justin Skeesuck and Patrick Gray, two other Camino hikers whose film I’ll Push You will be released in a one-night only screening at select theaters nationwide on November 2 and will benefit MDA, respond to Bryan’s entries with wisdom from their own journey.
Multifocal acquired motor axonopathy (MAMA) is an extremely rare neuromuscular disease that is often misdiagnosed as ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) due to similarities in the symptoms that initially occur in affected individuals.
