August is SMA Awareness Month in Sacramento! It’s Official!
Last night, I made a presentation before the Sacramento City Council, as Getty’s daddy and also on behalf of Getty Owl Foundation. I accepted a resolution officially declaring August as SMA Awareness Month in the City of Sacramento.
Thank you to Councilmember Kevin McCarty for making this possible and for supporting the cause. Thank you also to the City of Sacramento for your efforts in helping raise SMA awareness.
We are so excited that SMA was recognized in the chambers and equally excited that this is an eternal proclimation, so EVERY August is SMA Awareness Month in Sacramento!
Here is a video capturing the moment:
After the meeting, I rushed home because I knew Getty wanted to see what I had been up to. She cooed with delight.
All because of your family! You have made us all aware of this awful thing called SMA. Bless you all.
So proud of you guys!! xxx

You and Kate are the warriors this horrible disease needs to bring it out in the open….so happy people are listening and are joining in the fight to be a part of this battle ~ we must CONQUER!
