July is a Month of Miracles

July was a wonderful month for our family and for our cause!

Our daughter, Lucy Catherine, was born on July 15, 2010, at 8:08 AM.  She weighed 10 pounds, 5 ounces at birth and measured 21.5 inches. We named her Lucy because it means “light,” and she truly is the light at the end of a very dark tunnel.  A strong and healthy baby girl, she is SMA-free! Already, Lucy has brought so much happiness back to us.

Also this month, Sophia’s Cure, a non-profit organization founded by the inspiring Gaynor family, won a $250,000 grant in the online Pepsi Refresh Everything contest. The contest could not have been won without the daily voting and promoting done by the SMA community, including members of Andy’s Army. The grant will go directly to funding research for a cure for SMA.

As Sophia’s daddy says, “Miracles do Happen, Let’s Make One!”  Thank you for supporting our family and for helping us make our dreams a reality!
