Recently I came across a blog over at Dear Crissy about a sweet baby named Getty. After reading her post, and many others, and learning about Getty’s story I knew I had to help in anyway I could. I love using Social Media to bring awareness to causes, and this is one of those times I had to join in and raise some awareness.
Getty was diagnosed with SMA1 and her parents were told their beautiful daughter likely only had two years to live.
Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) is the leading genetic killer of infants and young children. It is a terminal, degenerative disease that results in the loss of nerves in the spinal cord and the weakness of the muscles connected with those nerves. SMA impacts the body’sability to walk, stand, sit, eat, breathe and even swallow. The mind and spirit of a child with SMA are no different from that of a healthy baby, but the body eventually fails. Typically, babies with SMA Type 1 have a life expectancy of between one and two years, and they require around-the-clock medical assistance and monitoring.
For more information please visit : Getty Owl Foundation.
Last week Getty Storm turned one. A huge milestone for an SMA baby. On Tuesday, April 5th, we’re finally giving her the birthday present we promised by releasing Lullabies for Getty via iTunes.
All proceeds from Sweet Water Child will go to The Getty Owl Foundation, to help put an end to Spinal Muscular Atrophy.
I was so touched by the effort that other have put into raising awareness and promoting Sweet Water Lullabies that I decided that I would buy two copies of this album for two lucky Family and Life in Las Vegas.
Two winners are going to get a MP3 download of Sweet Water Lullabies – Lullabies for Getty.
