To raise money for travel expenses for the Mudd family to attend the medical convention on Mastocytosis in Seattle for their son Grady.

I have known Jeremy Mudd for atleast 10 years now and over the years he has evolved into not only a good person but a great father. Along with his wife Megan Mudd they raise a young boy name Grady who has been diagnosed with mastocytosis. Grady is an incredible child who brings joy to so many. One could only imagine how difficult it is for a family to go through the steps to help their child cope with any kind of illness. They have been awarded a scholarship from the mastocytosis society to attend a medical convention in Seattle where they will meet face to face with doctors that can give them a better understanding of what mastocytosis is and how they can be better prepared to help Grady in his times of need. Although they have received a scholarship that pays for hotel and food why they are at the convention, there are additional expenses that go along with traveling that will not be covered by the scholarship. We are trying to raise money for them whether it be one dollar or a hundred dollars. Every little bit helps and we just ask that if you are able to that you please donate to this cause. Thank you
