    i was thinking that some time here soon when the weather heats up a little i was gonna try to get a fish off going and if i can afford it have some kind of prize for the winner but i was wanting to check with everyone and see what you guys think

    THE PURPOSE:

    Muscular Dystrophy (''Jerry's Kids'')

    the reason i want to do a fish off is that my son was recentley diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) and i was gonna see about raffeling off poles , line, hooks weights or something dont know but all money 100% will go to MDA every bit helps to find the cure:sad2::cool2:
    thanks for reading please let me know if anyone has a better idea or know any thing that would help let me know
    thanks

    I'm sorry to hear about your son. I think a fish off would be a nice idea. Any idea's of when and where?

    My oldest son Jaracho has Angelman Syndrome. My sons condition is rare and it helped me to join an online support group. The website had a lot of good information and I was able to talk to other parents going through the same things my son and myself were going through.

    sorry to hear that about your kids. My boys don't have anything like that but my oldest was born with an extra thumb and my youngest was born with an extra toe. Anything like that keeps you thinking though. But I'll keep you'll in my prayers.
