My nephew has Wilson’s Disease. We attended the Big Wow in Ann Arbor in 2015, and really felt it was a good cause.
 
This year, (2016) the Big Wow falls on my daughter’s wedding day. The family decided that we could do both, if the walk was closer. So, we decided to organize a walk at a time and location that allows us to participate in both events. I guess you could say it was selfish.
 
We hope that having a walk in another city will help spread the word and awareness of Wilson’s Disease.
 
Editor’s note:  This editor would call hosting a walk on your daughter’s wedding day as courageous and generous and on behalf of the Wilson’s Disease community, we want to thank you again.
