Michigan is going to be joining the other states - declaring August as “Spinal Muscular Atrophy Awareness Month!” This marks our fourth year of being involved in getting recognition for all the families dealing with SMA (past and present). With the help of our State Senator Tonya Schuitmaker we were able to get the Proclamation again this year! Our State Representative Aric Nesbitt will introduce the resolution on the House floor for us too! The State Senate will pass the resolution in the last week of August and the House will pass the resolution in the first week of September. We are so excited!!We will be sure to post pictures once we get the resolutions!
Senate Resolution 0079 (2013)
