Unite For The Cure: Take a look at what's going on over here!

Unite For The Cure

If you haven't done so recently, take a stroll over to UniteForTheCure.com to see what's going on! We are so excited that 11 inspiring "Uniters" are already on board and we'll be announcing additional families soon...

We started Unite For The Cure to motivate the SMA community to band together to help raise $100,000 to close a funding gap for a promising stem cell program led by Dr. Hans Keirstead at UC Irvine. This program has the real potential to cure SMA and it is our belief that funding should never be an obstacle to research with such potential. Our goal is for 20 "Uniters" within the SMA community to commit to raising $5,000 each by the end of November 2009 -- for a total of $100,000 -- with 100% of the tax deductible proceeds going directly to Dr. Keirstead's SMA stem cell program. We have been extremely encouraged and humbled by the amazing response from so many inspiring families to the program thus far.

We'll be doing regular blog posts at UniteForTheCure.com on the "Uniters", their stories, their fundraising ideas, and their progress. So, put UniteForTheCure.com on your normal blog roll to stay involved and cheer these families on!
