We are participating in the MDA Muscle Walk and we need your help.
In 2011, we learned that our son, Reid has an inherited genetic muscle disorder known as Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA). We learned that we are genetic carriers for SMA as well as approximately 1 in 35 Americans. Unfortunately, because of his muscle disorder, he is unable to walk independently and has some overall muscle weakness. As his parents, we cannot sit and wait for a treatment, cure, or miracle. SMA is one of the 40+ disorders that the MDA family covers and we are walking on March 2nd to make a muscle and make a difference for Reid.
Our team is Team Reid and we invite you to join us on March 2nd for the muscle walk. If you cannot make it to the walk, please consider supporting us financially as each dollar raised for our team is specifically allocated to SMA research.
Through this journey, we have learned that the ability to walk is not a given. It is a gift. We ask that you share your gift with us in March.
Make a Muscle. Make a Difference.
