Part of the proceeds from sales will be donated to the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA), an organization close to the heart of the Amble family. In the spring of 2009, Alex was diagnosed with a nerve disease covered by the MDA. One year later, Alex began his mission to raise $1 million for the MDA to find a cure for muscular dystrophy diseases. He has participated in several events to raise
money for the MDA. Visit www.alexamblemusic.com or www.alexamblemusic.com/links.html to see his efforts.
“We just loving helping other people and when we can raise money for the MDA that is great! “ says Pasha.
“We are so impressed with Alex’s efforts and commitment to helping the MDA! It is just inspiring to see someone his age take on such a huge effort,” commented Gina Adolphson of the MDA. “We are looking forward to having some of his art for the National MDA tour.”
