SMA Awareness!

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! 

SMA Carriers

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!

SMA Candle

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.
