We've all witnessed what a single $1 can do
if people are willing take a few minutes and mail it. Just think of all of the
yellow bracelets that you see around - I hear Lance Armstrong raised more than a
million for cancer research. I'm going to try to do the same :0) Ok -- maybe not
a million, but heck what about $1,000 or $5,000 or even $10,000. I'm asking you
to give a $1 -- not for a yellow bracelet or any bracelet at all but just for
the knowledge that you will be helping families and kids living with SMA --
helping them get the proper equipment, medicine or other support that insurance
may deny. Or maybe it will just be used to send the kids something to brighten
up their day or even to help pay for some of the growing piles of medical bills.
Or God Forbid, help the parents pay for the funeral expenses of the child they
lost to this disease.
If you feel like you can spare your dollar -- here is what I am asking you to do:
1. Get your $1 (more if compelled)
2. Write "SMA Hero Brett" somewhere on that dollar
3. Put it in an envelope and send it to
SMA Support Inc.
PO Box 6301
Kokomo, IN 46904-6301 and last but not least
4. Forward this email on to all of you family and friend.
