I was so humbled to get a phone interview with Melissa Abramovtiz from Dandelion Magazine back in September. Dandelion Magazine is the sister magazine to Sacramento Parent. Dandelion’s focus is on issues and needs of parents of children with special needs.
Since Getty’s diagnosis, I left many of the healthy parent blogs, websites, and magazines behind. I simply found it too difficult to relate and it was futile for me to try. However, when I first picked up Dandelion’s free publication, I was so happy to read about journeys of families with special needs children and topics I could instantly relate to. Even though they were not SMA families, it was still a comfort to read about similar fights with doctors, the need to learn about the best care possible for their child, and how to incorporate their child in a world that doesn’t necessarily make their environment accessible. Dandelion also has great resources and finds some great activities in the community for all to experience.
When I got the email and then phone interview about Getty Owl Foundation, I could not have been more excited.
Thanks to Melissa Abramovtiz for asking such informed questions about SMA. I could tell she had done her SMA homework. I was very impressed.
Go here to read the Winter Issue. The GOF article is on pages 18 & 19.
Thanks to Dandelion and Sacramento Parent for making this article possible, this is an incredible opportunity for us and your readers to learn more about SMA.
Thanks also to the Willams Family for offering their input on the article and Stacey for saying some really nice things.
Both Sacramento Parent and Dandelion are both free publications in the greater Sacramento area. Pick one up if you can, both are very informative and helpful for parents.
