Moms Fight Incurable Diseases

With Mother’s Day only a few days away, it seems a good time to tell you about an organization called Fightermom.

Begun by a group of mothers fighting a disease called Spinal Muscular Atrophy, it has now expanded to include any adults who love children who were born with an incurable disease. The website, found at: provides forums and blogs for moms to share information and find support. It is intended to provide assistance to those who want to take a step beyond the caretaking of their sick children, to a place that also supports eradication of those diseases.

If you are the mom or other loved one of a child with an incurable disease, take a look at Fightermom.

Regardless of the health of your children — I hope you have a wonderful Mother’s Day.
