Welcome to Jen Menzel's Personal Page
I am fundraising for Cure SMA in honor of one of my students, a fantastic kid, named Graham. He has a great sense of humor and makes me laugh nearly every time I see him. He spreads joy everywhere and with everyone. And this is amazing, considering the number of times in his short life that he has had to fight to survive. He has an amazing family that adores him and accepts him completely. Because of this, he is ready to face almost any challenge.
Cure SMA is leading the way to a world without spinal muscular atrophy. SMA is the number one genetic cause of death for infants and 1 in 50 people in the United States is a genetic carrier. SMA impacts the lives of thousands of people and Cure SMA is an irreplaceable resource. By providing services like care packages for newly diagnosed families, teens, and adults, local Summit of Strength programs, an equipment pool, and the Annual SMA Conference - Cure SMA supports the community as they navigate life with SMA. Cure SMA has also invested more than $75 million in research and has funded half of all the ongoing new drug programs for SMA, including Spinraza, the first-ever approved therapy for SMA.
Join me by registering or donating today! Make a donation of $25 or more to support Cure SMA so they can keep providing these important programs and services for the community. Do it for Graham. Do it for all kids with SMA.
Thank you for joining me in the fight against SMA!
