Share the Happiness of Health with Little Ali
Ali is a four-year-old boy whose life has been affected by spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) type-1. He has been fighting to survive this terrible disease since he was one month old. Ali's brain is fully functional, and he can feel pain just like everyone else. He can see and hear but is unable to move his head, arms or legs and cannot communicate with his parents.
Ali deserves treatment and a right to live. This degenerative disease is fast moving and with every critical minute Ali moves closer to loosing this battle with SMA. Child Foundation's goal is to raise funds so that Ali can get the treatment he deserves as soon as possible.
Spinraza is the only FDA approved drug used in treating SMA with promising results in helping to regain muscle movement in patients. Marketed and manufactured by Biogen, it is the century’s most expensive medicine, costing $750,000 for a year. The treatment comprises of six injections to the spinal marrow. Unfortunately, Biogen will not accept partial payments and the full $750,000 must be paid in full. Hospital admission must also be obtained where the injections can be administered.
Together we can help Ali and save his life by donating to Child Foundation's Little Ali Medical Fund.
