Fighting for Aiden
Our team supports Cure SMA because we lost an incredible little boy due to this rare disease. Spinal Muscular Atrophy is the number one genetic cause of death for infants under the age of 2. 95% of children living with this disease will never see their second birthday. Sadly, Aiden never made it to his 1st. He was diagnosed on July 12, 2017 after being hospitalized for the second time, and just days after he turned 6 months old. Over the next 3 months, we had appointment after appointment, Spinraza injections, and yet again another hospitalization. On Oct 6, Aiden gained his angel wings, after spending 38 days in the hospital.
Aiden showed us what a fighter looked like, so to honor his memory we want to join this cause to help future families be able to get the help and treatments they deserve. No child should have to go through what these kids do, and no family should have to make decisions that we have been faced with.
Your donations will go to helping other families, future treatments options and hopefully to find a cure. Cure SMA has been incredible to our family, so we want to give back anyway we can.
