The Miller McNeil Woodruff Foundation awarded $87,000 to Cure SMA, in order to further research that will lead to a treatment and cure for SMA. Their gift will also help fund continued advocacy and awareness intiatives.
The generous donation is made each year by Patrick and Meredith Woodruff, in honor of thier son, Miller, who passed away from SMA type I at 87 days old. Cure SMA is incredibily 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 recieved 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.
