This sad news was in my Google reader today:
Add me to the list of Avery's fans and followers. I just started reading her blog and have fallen in love with this precious smile.
Avery is close to 5 months old and has been diagnosed with an incurable genetic disease, which I (and many of her readers) have never even heard of.
Her parents have been told she will lose the ability to walk and move her arms, and more awful than that, doctors have said that Avery will die between now and the next 18 months. Her parents started this blog with the hope that they can spread the word about SMA and help save future lives.
Please keep Avery and her family in your prayers
