Jamie and Lance Wheeler's daughter, 3-year-old Makaeya, has been diagnosed with MLD, a rare genetic disease that has no cure. The disease, basically, robs the brain's ability to communicate with muscles until the child can't walk, talk or, later, move. It will likely kill her. The Easton community has rallied around Makaeya, setting up fundraisers for expenses and creating Facebook pages with around 500 fans each.
