B&C Morning Show: Chris Carrino Brings Awareness To Muscular Dystrophy

Chris Carrino is the Nets radio play-by-play man here on WFAN and today he joined Boomer and Craig in the Allstate Studio to talk about his battle with Facioscapulohumeral Muscular Dystrophy and raise awareness for the disease.

Carrino, 40 years-old, was diagnosed with FSHD at the age of 23 and just recently went public with his affliction.  He has since started  the “Chris Carrino Foundation for FSHD” which is dedicated to the effort of eradicating the life-altering effects of FSHD.

While chatting with the guys, Craig made sure Carrino was aware of what a big fan he was —  he even had Chris listen to his play-by-play efforts a couple of years back, when Craig & Boomer filled in for Carrino on a Nets broadcast. They even managed to describe the deuce being dropped…

    Thank you Chris for establishing your foundation for Facioscapulohumeral Muscular Dystrophy (FSHD or FSH) and for speaking out about the impact of FSHD upon your life. Although FSHD is considered by many to be the most common form of Muscular Dystrophy it is still lagging far behind other similar conditions in research funding.

    Friends of FSH Research (www.fshfriends.org) established in 2004 has been dedicated to stimulating new interest in FSH research and providing the “start up” funding for FSH research projects. Through our fundraising events we were able to provide some of the critical funding for the research studies conducting in the Seattle area which played a role in the FSH research breakthroughs published last year.

    Progress in FSH research is slowly being made, yet in order to find a treatment or cure for this progressively disabling condition we need more research funding. Perhaps, now with increasing public awareness and greater public support this work will receive the funding required to find a treatment or cure for FSH Muscular Dystrophy.
