Baby Logan Ruth was born on July 6th 2012 and diagnosed with a terminally genetic disease SMA Type 1 on Nov 21st 2012.
On behalf of the Ruth family I (Jennifer Yandell) started this fundraiser to help with his medical bills, medical machine rentals, special formula, transportation to specialist at STL Children's Hospital, and end of life services.
This fund is to help relieve Logan's parents from the financial stress and focus their attention on Logan and the time they have with him. No donation is too small and is very much appreciated. Thank you!!!!!!

"Type 1 is normally diagnosed before 6 months of age. Many times, symptoms start while still in the womb. They are not able to hold up their heads, roll over, crawl, sit up without support, or walk. All of their muscles are extremely weak, with the weakest muscles being the legs, upper arms, and neck. A common cold can easily turn into pneumonia which is what usually takes the lives of these children, along with “respiratory failure” or when they no longer have the lung or chest muscles to be able to breathe on their own." Children with this diagnose usually do not live past the age of 2.
