Support Daniel

Last year I received the news that my nephew, Daniel, had been diagnosed with SMA (Spinal Muscular Atrophy) in its most severe form, the type 1 SMA.

The disease is aggressive and progressive, therefore requires special needs. Today, Daniel lives a routine full of therapies with home care for a better quality of life. It's a difficult routine and every day is a victory for Daniel and for us.

Recently a new medication released in the United States, the SPINRAZA, showed considerable progress in children with this severe disease. The medication is not the cure, but will make the life of Daniel considerably better.

Daniel needs several applications, during the first year of the treatment the costs are, approximately, a million dollars. That is why Daniel needs our help.

We can all do a little and the sum of our efforts will help Daniel and his family get the SPINRAZA. It's possible to donate online through the link.

The will donate all its revenue gained through adds during the Australian leg for the Daniel's campaign (

Do you part, let's all help the little Danda win this battle.
