The Miller McNeil Woodruff Foundation recently awarded $87,000 to Cure SMA, in order to further research that will lead to treatments for all ages, stages and types of SMA. Their gift will also help fund continued advocacy and awareness initiatives.
The generous donation is made each year by Patrick and Meredith Woodruff, in honor of their son, Miller, who passed away from SMA type I at 87 days old. In the last five years, the Woodruffs have raised $446,937 for Cure SMA. We are especially honored to have once again been chosen as beneficiaries of a gift from this incredible family and foundation.
Since Miller’s passing, the Woodruffs have been dedicated to spreading awareness and helping to fund crucial research. The support Cure SMA has received from the Woodruffs and their foundation has been vital to a range of projects that include providing critically needed medical equipment to SMA families.
On behalf of the entire SMA community, thank you to the Woodruff family and the Miller McNeil Woodruff Foundation.
