Jacob Isaac Rappoport Foundation Campaign
to Cure SMA


About Jacob Isaac Rappoport

Our son, Jacob Isaac Rappoport, was born on December 27, 2001. He was sent home from the hospital with a clean bill of health- a perfect, happy baby boy. At the age of four months, Jacob was diagnosed with SMA and our world came crashing down around us. Jacob was never able to roll over, sit up or crawl. By the age of six months, he had lost the ability to swallow. On October 1, 2002, Jacob's respiratory muscles had grown too weak to sustain him, and he died. He was nine months old. He was showered with immeasurable love by his family and friends every day of his short life. We miss him more than words can possibly express.
