THIS IS STELLA
Stella is like any other 5yr old. She is getting settled in her first year in kindergarten, making new friends and learning all kinds of new things from her amazing teachers. She loves music – Katy Perry, Taylor Swift, and One Direction are on constant rotation in our house. She loves her brother, mom, dad, and her dog. Stella has Spinal Muscular Atrophy Type 2.
This is SMA
- SMA destroys the nerves that control voluntary movement like crawling, walking, head and neck control and even swallowing.
- SMA is the #1 genetic killer of children under the age 2.
- 1 in 6000 babies is born with SMA.
- 50% of the children diagnosed before the age 2, will die before their 2nd birthday.
Team Stella is also all of those who take time throughout the year to help Stella raise money and awarness for SMA, and of course all of her doctors and care givers that are dedicated to helping Stella live the most amazing life possible. Check out some of her heros on Facebook.
