Spinal Muscular Atrophy

I knew nothing about SMA until I met a woman who has become one of my best friends. I met Cassandra Byrd well over a year ago on Twitter and met in person at one of my Mom’s Night Out Events. Now we go to hockey games, have our own 2 or 3 person girl’s nights out, and catch late night chick flicks. She even contributes to my blog on #twintuesday!

Cassandra is the mother of three beautiful children. She’s also one of the strongest women I know. Our girls go to the same school. Her oldest, Jenna, is in second grade just like my Rachel. Her two younger children, Kyle and Lauren, are twins. They’re 4 years old. They’re not just our friends… they are also our neighbors… only a few streets down.

Kyle and Lauren have SMA. You can read all about it on their website Byrds For A Cure. In order to help find a cure… I’m participating in a wing eating competition at our local BUffalo Wild Wings. You can help too! You can help by coming and cheering me on at the BDubs at 2510 W Happy Valley Rd on Thursday, Oct. 27th at 7pm. Order dinner and 10% of your bill will go towards our cause! You can also donate through my page on Crowdrise. It’s completely secure and you can donate anonymously if you’d like: http://www.crowdrise.com/SMaWingFest/fundraiser/KellyLoubet

Your support in this fundraiser means a great deal to me. Thank you for being such amazing friends and readers. XO- Kelly
