At six months old Arianna was diagnosed with a disease (SMA type1)that robs people of physical strength by affecting the motor nerve cells in the spinal cord, taking away the ability to walk, eat, or breathe. It is the number one genetic cause of death for infants. With this grant we were able to purchase much needed equipment for my Arianna.
Without the generosity of CJ’s Fund, we wouldn’t be able to offer this benefit to families as readily. We’re so grateful to you both, to your families & friends & all who donate in your dear little one’s name to make these kind of small miracles happen! Our Team feels strongly that the love you held for CJ just keeps continuing outward in many positive and caring ways. We’re so grateful to you and all of CJ’s loving supporters – they’ve touched so many – across the state…thanks again for thinking of those children who are in need of Early Intervention – CJ’s Fund has made such a difference in so many young lives.
