Welcome to Georgia's Journey

Georgia Lily Lucas was born at home on October 6th, 2008 4:15am, in Winnipeg, Manitoba. She was diagnosed with SMA (Spinal Muscular Atrophy) on April 1, 2009.

On April 3rd Georgia was taken home, to be near her sisters and the rest of her family and friends. Nearly three weeks later, on April 21, 2009, she died peacefully -- in the loving arms of her mother and in the same room in which she was born.

Past emails (4/1/09) - Diagnosis

[From Krista on behalf of Mike and Kristen]

Hello,

I spoke with Kristen at 3:30 today and she asked me to send you all an e-mail as she knows many of you have been waiting to hear. They were given the confirmed diagnosis of SMA today for Georgia. I do not know what else to tell you at this time except all we have in our hearts, our love, thoughts and continued prayers should be sent towards them. Kristen and I only spoke for a few minutes and she needed to speak with a doctor. The family will be leaving shortly to go and visit but should I hear anything else I will write again.

I love that baby and that family with all that I have as you all do. Please continue to provide Kristen and Mike as well as the 3 girls with all your continued strength.

I or another will update you when we can.

Krista
