When Angie was diagnosed with SMA at fifteen months old, we were nowhere near a treatment. A few days ago, the second treatment for Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) was approved by the FDA.
For the past decade, Angie and her friends have gotten an unbelievable amount of support in our efforts to raise funds and awareness for a cure for SMA, and it is amazing to see everyone’s support having such tangible benefits for patients with this disease! We are so thankful and we don’t want to stop now.
This year, as the core Angie’s Hope team is around at different colleges, we wanted to think of an incentive for college students to donate to Cure SMA. And what do college students need/want most? Money!
Every $5 you donate is a chance to win a $500 Visa gift card. Please consider helping our cause by donating as little or as much as you can, but more importantly–spreading the word! The last day to donate to enter the raffle is June 14th. You can donate at tinyurl.com/angieshope2019
Hi everyone! Kyra’s Idea Angie’s Hope is an organization that has been raising money to cure Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA), a neuromuscular disease that affects our friend Angie. Last year was the last annual Angie’s Hope event, as Angie and many of us who were involved in the fundraisers headed off to colleges all across the nation. The theme for this final event was “Promise to Cure SMA”… and here we are to fulfill that promise! Since we’re spread out all across the country, we have decided to host an online fundraiser this year, and we’ve designed these laptop stickers that will help raise money AND spread awareness about SMA. Anyone who donate $5 or more will receive a laptop sticker in the mail. You can follow this link tinyurl.com/angieshope2018 to make a donation.
The continued support over the years means so much to us and we could not thank all of you enough! Let’s all remember our promise and continue doing our part to cure SMA! Thank you so much!
PROMise to Cure SMA
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT.
TOGETHER WE RAISED $55,000 THIS YEAR!
THANKS TO OUR BUSINESS SPONSORS
Wow, what a journey this has been. I want to extend huge thank you to every single one of you who have battled Spinal Muscular Atrophy right alongside of me. When I sat down to write this short letter of thanks, I found myself at a loss, for it is truly impossible to describe the immense of amount of gratitude that I’m filled with when I think of Angie’s Hope. As our community has united in the effort to rid this single, rare neuromuscular disease, we’ve all etched each other, this cause, and the spirit of helping others into our unique, individual life stories. The story of Angie’s Hope is one that I will never stop sharing. The generous souls of each of you who have contributed to our cause in some way, whether big or small, are forever engrained in my heart. And I pray for you too, that the promise you’ve made to cure SMA leaves you with an enthusiasm to continue fighting, a sense of awe towards humanity’s goodness, a warmth as you remember the good ol’ times at the events, and a hope for the bright future ahead. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for making my hope a reality.
