This is Cadence Jade she has Spinal Muscular Atrophy Type-1. Her story is below. Thank you for all your support, God Bless! More ...
Meet Cadence Jade, she was born on November 19, 2012. Everything appeared to be relatively normal until one day her mommy took her to the doctor for a cold and that all changed fast. The doctor was really concerned about her reflexes because she had none and didn't hardly move her arms and legs at all. He sent her to Children's hospital to have tests run on her. Well the neurologist came in a few days after admission because they originally thought it could be meningitis because she developed a fever. The Neurologist told Cadence's parents what no parent should ever have to hear. He thought she had SMA and wouldn't live to be 2 years old. They did the test and it came back positive she has SMA type-1. SMA affects all the muscles, it deteriorates them. That includes her respiratory muscles, digestive system, arms, legs, reflexes, etc. She will eventually need to be on a permanent feeding tube because her body will quit allowing her to suck and swallow. And eventually she will need to be on oxygen or BiPap machine all the time. Right now she is in the hospital with a cold and has been on the BiPap machine, oxygen, and a feeding tube. They often get pneunomia because they cannot cough up the congestion in their chest. And sometimes just a cold can be life threatening in children with SMA. Her mother is unable to work for obvious reasons. They need help with medical bills, medical equipment that they have to bring home with them, bills, food, gas money to get back and fourth to the hospital, etc. If you wouldn't mind helping, we would be VERY appreciative. Any little bit helps. Thank you for all your prayers and support of little Miss. Cadence Jade!
