Gold filled earring posts. A delicate filagree butterfly makes for a lightweight stud. Hand carved shell adds a sweet touch to these floating butterflies. 100% of the proceeds will go to the L-CMD foundation in honor of Austin Corman. Baby Austin was born with the rare condition, congenital muscular dystrophy (L-CMD), that primarily affects muscles used for movement. We are hoping to raise two million by Austin’s second birthday.  Austin is 1.5 years old and in order to save Austin and similarly situated children, his parents have started the L-CMD Research Foundation.  The purpose of the foundation is to fund the work of researchers and scientists who will develop treatments and a cure for L-CMD.  The most pressing project, which could literally save Austin from childhood death, is the development of a gene therapy.
