Hey everyone -- I am PLEADING with you to vote for SMA in the Chase $1MM giveaway on Facebook if you haven't already. Please take a moment to head on over to VoteForSMA.com and cast your vote which could win the SMA community $1,000,000 that will go towards research and family support for this terrible disease. Remember:
- SMA is the #1 genetic killer of kids under age 2
- 1/6,000 kids are born with SMA (that is an estimated 10,000+ kids that die each year from Spinal Muscular Atrophy!)
- 1/40 people carry the gene responsible for SMA. That could be YOU
- There is NO TREATMENT and NO CURE for SMA :/
- BUT, NIH says SMA is the disease closest to a cure.
