1 in 40 or 7.5 million Americans are carriers of Spinal Muscular Atrophy. Do you know if you are a carrier? Spinal Muscular Atrophy is the #1 genetic killer of children!
I’ve heard of SMA before but have never researched it until last night. A fellow Zebra has a daughter affected by it. Since genetic diseases are near and dear to my heart, I had to look it up. I was shocked at what I saw. There are two types of SMA. Type 0 and Type 1 – Type 1 being the deadliest.
Please take a moment to pray for the families affected by this. Let’s pray for a cure. In the meantime, let’s show our support to these families and help raise awareness!
Light a candle in honor of them! SMA colors are purple, but white will do. You can always use the above picture. I created this myself using Pink Zebra’s Sprinkles.

Blessings to you and yours! We’re praying for a cure!
