A message from GWENDOLYN STRONG FOUNDATION

Thank you for your generous donation to the Gwendolyn Strong Foundation
(theGSF) in support of a Team GSF member moving their
body so one day children with SMA can too. theGSF is a 501(c)(3) public
charity dedicated to increasing global awareness of Spinal Muscular Atrophy
(SMA), the leading genetic killer of young children, supporting families
impacted and accelerating research focused on ending this cruel disease.
SMA is devastating but the children affected are incredible, brave, and
full of life. Our motto is to NEVER GIVE UP. and we encourage others to
embrace the NEVER GIVE UP. attitude by pushing their physical strength to
the limits to help conquer a disease that robs children of theirs. We are
an all volunteer organization, meaning 100% of your donation goes toward
fulfilling our mission. Thank you for giving hope to thousands of families!

Sincerely,
Bill, Victoria & Gwendolyn Strong

QUICK SMA FACTS:

- SMA is the #1 genetic killer of young children.
- SMA is a degenerative disease that causes weakness and wasting of the
voluntary muscles in infants and children.
- SMA eventually impacts every muscle in the body hindering the ability
to walk, stand, eat, speak, breathe, and swallow.
- The mind is never affected and children with SMA are bright and social
in spite of their physical limitations.
- 1 in every 40 people unknowingly carry the gene responsible for SMA.
Most have no family history.
- SMA is a pan-ethnic disease and does not discriminate based on race,
ethnicity, or gender.
- There is NO treatment. There is NO cure. But the NIH named SMA as the
disease closest to treatment.
