ophy, is a progressive and fatal muscle disorder affecting boys and young men that causes the loss of muscle function, wheelchair dependency and a decline in respiratory and cardiac function.

The Liam Hiatt Foundation was founded by Mr. and Mrs. Hiatt, Liam's grandparents, along with his maternal grandfather, Dennis S. Joy, and Liam's parents, John C. Hiatt, Jr. and Kristin Hiatt. The Gala has been in the works for many months and the Hiatt's first choice for a host was Mr. Kurtis.

Having an extraordinary reporter like Bill Kurtis is humbling and will hopefully bring Duchenne to the attention of Chicago's generous citizens and urge them to join our fight," said Mr. Hiatt.

John Hiatt, Jr., Liam's father, is a board member of PPMD, which takes a comprehensive approach in the fight against Duchenne - funding research, promoting advocacy, connecting the community, broadening treatment options, and raising awareness. PPMD Founding President and CEO, Pat Furlong, was thrilled that the organization was chosen to be a part of this important new event. Said Mrs. Furlong, "The entire Hiatt family has played an integral role in the success of PPMD, helping to raise thousands of dollars that directly fund critical research that will one day end Duchenne.
