Cure SMA would like to thank the Fighting for Kaiden Foundation for their generous donations to Cure SMA programs. That generosity is providing both support for today and hope for the future to those affected by SMA.
The foundation recently donated 15 Leckey Advanced Bath Chairs, two EASyS Strollers, and two large boxes of toys for our SMA type II and III care packages. Many of the equipment items donated have already been loaned out to families all across the country. The equipment will help these families in the activities that make up their daily lives.
The foundation also donated $35,000 to support research to develop treatments and, ultimately, a cure for SMA.
The Fighting for Kaiden Foundation was started by the Defazio family, in honor of Kaiden, who has SMA type I. The foundation brings together Kaiden’s family, friends, and supporters through events and fundraisers like a live auction, holiday party, paint night, and more.
Our thanks again to the foundation and all their incredible supporters and donors.
Cure SMA Equipment Pool
Through our equipment pool, Cure SMA loans necessary medical equipment free of charge. In the last year, we lent out nearly 300 pieces of equipment, thanks to the support of generous donors like the Defazio family and Fighting for Kaiden.
