Dear Supporter,

The Faces of SMA Gala & Silent Auction is a fundraising event in honor of Kaiden DeFazio and all those battling Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA). The goal is to raise funds for promising research, medical needs, quality of life and increased awareness.

Our first gala boasted more than 200 attendees for an evening of dinner, music, dancing, cocktails, silent auction and raffle items. Please join us in our second year for this special night of making memories, having fun and most importantly, hope.

Who is Kaiden?
Kaiden is a bright, happy child who is full of personality and even typical toddler trouble. Diagnosed at six months with SMA Type 1, he is affected but not defined by his illness. He continues to defy the odds by thriving through his first and now second birthdays. He is the inspiration behind our mission of spreading awareness and helping others in their fight with SMA.

What is SMA?
SMA (Spinal Muscular Atrophy) is a disease that robs people of physical strength by affecting the motor nerve cells in the spinal cord. It causes progressive weakness until the body simply cannot continue. It is the number one genetic cause of death for infants

While the FDA recently announced the approval of the first-ever therapy for SMA, it is not the total solution.The treatment does not work for everyone with SMA and we must continue to develop and deliver effective therapies that will change the course of SMA - from infants to adults - and eventually lead to a cure. We are excited to be supporting essential research.

With your help, we can make a real difference.

Sincerely,
Fighting for Kaiden Foundation, Inc.
