Meet Some of Our 2018 Shamrockstars

  • Meet Natalie, age 11

    Natalie and her sister Avery do a lot of things together, so it’s no surprise they appear on an MDA Shamrock together. Natalie was diagnosed with Bethlem myopathy at age 6, and MDA has provided a community for her family to turn to for help and belonging. Natalie loves MDA Summer Camp, and when she grows up, she wants to build accessible homes and buildings.

  • Meet Garin, age 14

    Garin was diagnosed with Duchenne muscular dystrophy at the age of 3. Every day, Garin's diagnosis brings numerous challenges, but his positive attitude enables him to face each challenge head on. He loves animals — including his service dog, Ranger — and dreams of someday becoming an architect.

  • Meet Avery and Kennedy, age 11

    Twin sisters Avery and Kennedy were diagnosed with spinal muscular atrophy when they were infants. They both love attending their local MDA Summer Camp — the dance party is their favorite activity. Avery says that most people don’t know that she’s into video games, she’s very smart and that her “dance moves are on fleek.” Kennedy says she loves to play video games and write stories, and when she grows up, she wants to be a motivational speaker and help people feel strong.

Making an Impact One Shamrock at a Time

Each day, freedoms like walking, talking, hugging and even breathing are taken from individuals with muscular dystrophy, ALS and related life-threatening diseases. See the impact our iconic paper shamrocks had last year.
