Everyone is talking about Avery.  Avery is a beautiful five-month-old girl from Texas who has SMA.  Her parents have created a “bucket list” for her, with things they want her to see and do before the disease takes her away.  Their progress on the list is being chronicled on a blog started by Avery’s dad, called Avery’s Bucket List.  At the end of each post on that blog, the family asks people to donate to FightSMA, for which we are eternally grateful.

In the last few weeks, the family’s efforts have gone positively viral, with attention coming from new and old media, including Good Morning America and Huffington Post.  If you haven’t heard about Avery, we urge you to head over to her blog and take a look.  The family is working to make sure Avery gets to experience as much as possible.  The most recent items crossed off the list include visiting a baseball game, throwing out the first pitch, and getting to “shake hands with super hot baseball players!”
