August is Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) Awareness month!
Cure SMA Canada spreads awareness throughout Canada to bring hope to a future where SMA is a curable disease.
This year, the CN Tower and the Montreal Tower will be lit up in purple and orange, the Cure SMA Canada colours, on August 19 from 6:30pm until 7:00am August 20, in honour of those living with SMA, and in precious memory of those we have lost. Together we are strong in our commitment to supporting families affected by Spinal Muscular Atrophy.
Untreated, SMA is a degenerative neuromuscular disease, causing weakness throughout the body. A person affected by SMA has normal cognitive ability. Lets stand strong together in remembrance of those we have lost to this disease and for those who still wait for access to treatment.
Cure SMA Canada is Canada’s national charity supporting families affected by SMA through funding critical research projects, advocacy and support initiatives such as camps, newly diagnosed packages and informational conferences. Cure SMA Canada provides Help for Today and Hope for Tomorrow.
Thank you to the Montreal Tower and the CN Tower management teams for supporting Cure SMA Canada to spread awareness for Spinal Muscular Atrophy.
