A quick flashback to September 10, 2015.
Back to 2016!
If a picture is worth a thousand words, how much is a video worth!
At four months, even if he was in water Emmett could only make tiny movements with his legs. So imperceptible sometime that if you weren't touching his legs you didn't see the muscle contracting. He could manage tiny movement of his ankles. Between five and six months he could not do much more than raise and lower his arms - at one point it was only his right arm. His ability to slightly turn his head was also lost. It was a very challenging time. More challenging than we have ever shared on this blog. However, miracles are happening and look at this little fish! He loves being in water. Our little Nemo! Keep praying for Emmett, other little ones with SMA, and the researchers in their search for a cure.
Want to learn more about how you can help cure SMA. It takes funds to support the research. But even more, your kind words and thoughtful emails help support the brave families who are involved in the unknown factors of clinical trials. They have hope - but your support offers even more hope! Watch this video. Note: The children in this video may have either SMA Type 1 or Type 2 or Type 3.
Emmett has Type 1.
Emma, Addison, and Atticus each had SMA Type 1.
