WE LOVE SOMEONE RARE & BEAUTIFUL! Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) is a degenerative disease that results in the loss of nerves in the spinal cord and the weakness of the muscles connected with those nerves. SMA impacts the ability to walk, stand, sit, eat, breathe and even swallow. The mind and spirit are no different from that of a healthy baby. SMA Statistics: • SMA is the #1 genetic killer of infants and young children • 1 in every 40 people or nearly 10 million Americans UNKNOWINGLY carry the gene responsible for SMA • 1 in 6,000 babies are effected every year • SMA does not discriminate based on race, ethnicity, or gender. This charity wedding registry is in honor of our nephew Cooper!
