Michael Kaneff ’13, a television-radio student major, uses his production skills to raise awareness for a medical condition that hits close to home: Muscular Dystrophy.

Kaneff’s mother was diagnosed with MD eight years ago. He now produces videos to connect with others affected by the disease and to help raise money for the cause.
