Picture in my profile is my family with Grandson Ethan. Along with about 1000 other boys in the world he suffers from life threatening MECP2 Duplication Syndrome. Develpmental delays, and severe seizures and hospitalizations for Pneumonia have not kept him from joining us at the Box ,At Crossfit Adrenaline many of his family and freinds make him feel like he is in the best place in the world. Too many of the other children with Ethan's disorder do not see there 11 th birthday like Ethan has. Crossfit Adrenaline Team competing in the games as well as me are dedicating our games experience to awareness of this severe syndrome and the families coping with it with hope that we can find a cure.Many thanks to the guys at Box- Stalker Fitness Apparell who were major sponsors at the recent Family medical conference for this syndrome at Baylor College of Medecine in Houston and the southeast community of Crossfitters who showed up for the MECP2 charity Battle by The Mounds in ce , GA!The community of cross fitters is truly amazing.
