About SMA

  • Fewer than 1 in 35 people unknowingly carrying the gene responsible for SMA.
  • 1 in every 6,000 babies is born with SMA; SMA prevalence is comparable to ALS and Cystic Fibrosis.

  • There is currently no treatment and no cure for SMA, but there is HOPE!

  • Leading U.S. researchers, including Nobel laureate James Watson, have stated that a viable treatment for SMA is possible within 5 years IF they are provided the proper resources.

    Beautiful

    Our wedding video is nearly done (I took forEVER to get Mitch our song choices so he was sitting there in Seattle wanting to work on it while I hemmed and hawed) (hmmm, apparently procrastination is my thing lately). But here’s a perfect little 4ish-minute slice of the happiest day of my life. You may recognize some of these scenes from the clip I posted a while back, but this is so much more. I friggin’ love Mitch from Cabfare Productions. You have to hire him for your wedding if you can. And take note right around 1:00 to see the three beauties who complete me (aside from, you know, my soulmate and my parents and stuff).

    Oh, and I’ve concluded that I can’t make any commitments yet to posting regularly. I’m having serious, uh, life issues right now – some good and some bad – and my pea-sized brain can’t handle it. So stick me in your reader or RSS feed and you’ll see me when I’m back. Also, I’m getting my puppy on Sunday.
