GO LEO GO WAS A HUGE SUCCESS !
It really was an amazing day, and it would not have been possible with out the support of Leo’s Pride, our amazing sponsors, community and an incredible team that organized and executed on every idea that came up!
Leo's Pride Foundation is now a 501(c) !
It has happened. The first treatment ever for SMA (for all ages, for all types!) has been approved by the FDA. For years we have watched the children in these trials grow stronger while others like Leo grew weaker. We have watched them hit milestones, use manual wheelchairs independently, stand and take steps. They have given hope to so many. They are the faces of the “new SMA”
We believe in the power of prayer. Leo loves to say his prayers, and loves hearing about people in Leo's Pride praying for him.
