#GivingTuesdayFrom Kate, Today is a truly big day for all non-profits. I know I can’t speak for every non-profit, but what I can honestly say for Getty Owl Foundation is that we love what we do. Throughout Getty’s life, Getty we have had the chance to meet so many wonderful SMA families across the US and abroad. These SMA families are always trying to do the best they can to care for their children and affected adults. It has truly been an honor to get to know many and make lasting connections that continue to grow to this day. What we have also learned on this journey is that in just about every corner of the care for our children is something that costs money. Insurance can be tricky and simply unfair in what they consider medically necessary to cover. Am insurance denial can be not only heartbreaking but financially debilitating. While we all fight to the bitter end and do not allow any stone unturned when it comes to appeals, denials, etc. things still cost money. Getty Owl Foundation has focused on finding what the needs of SMA families are and how to bridge that gap. Medical supplies, life saving devices, shipping costs, life and educational tools, and sources of comfort all have costs. We established Getty Owl Foundation to fill these care needs and offer enrichment that might be left unfulfilled by insurance companies, school districts, primary care, and other avenues of family support. We are proud of our work and we believe in our mission: Helping Families. Fighting SMA Today is #GivingTuesday and we ask that you consider Getty Owl Foundation when deciding to donate.
