All proceeds benefit the NWL Girl's Basketball Club and 11 year old Lance Pierce and his Family!

Lance Pierce, son of Marshall and Christine Pierce, of New Tripoli was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD). DMD is a rapidly worsening form of muscular dystrophy. Other muscular dystrophies get worse much more slowly. There is no known cure for Duchenne muscular dystrophy. Treatment aims to control symptoms to maximize quality of life.

Lance is currently a 5th grader at Northwestern Lehigh Elementary. Lance's father also recently had a stroke and is now unable to work. The family had to move to a ranch style home to accommodate Lance and his father, but must return to their previous home, which needs many renovations to accommodate them. Transportation is also not easy for the family without a handicap van.
