This is SMA. And this is what incredible looks like.

August 15, 2011 by Victoria Strong

We asked families impacted by SMA to submit a photo and share something they would want others to know about them/their child. And this is what we received. Speechless. Simply speechless.

These families and their stories represent what this disease really is. SMA is far more than its brutal statistics. It is families. It is their love, their determination, their resilience. It is children. It is their joy, their bravery, their zest for life. It is mothers and fathers, sisters and brothers, grandparents, friends, newborns and college graduates. It is perseverance. It is perspective. It is courage.

This is SMA. And this is what incredible looks like.

These are truly wonderful children! I know my Aubrey is smiling down on us. Beautiful way to show love and support for this cause. We WILL find a cure for all of the children who fight and to honor those who are no longer here!
