Cure SMA and the entire SMA community mourn the loss of 35 year old David Cunniff of Duanesburg, NY. David was in a work related accident last night and passed away this morning.
David is the father to Caleb, who has SMA type II and Zach, and husband to Amy. David and Amy quickly became involved in the SMA community and lead the charge throughout the Albany, NY area to help find a treatment and a cure for spinal muscular atrophy. Together, they started the Capital Region Satellite Chapter of Greater New York and hosted numerous fundraisers throughout the year.
David was always positive and a joy to work with, and will always be remembered. Our thoughts go out to his family during this very difficult time.
