It's not too late to #VoteForSMA!! #SMA

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.
Please vote and tell your friends. Voting ends tomorrow, 1/22! Also, head over to the GwendolynStrong.com blog to read more about this competition. The support we've generated for SMA through social media and networking is down right AWESOME!!
