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.

Bracelets

To all of my friends and family here in Canada and most especially Winnipeg, my friend Tanya has been working with the Gwendolyn Strong Foundation and has a special offer for all of our Canadian friends. As many of you know Tanya was the one who made and gave the girls and I three very beautiful and personal charm bracelets in memory of Georgia. She has now been making them as part of a fundraiser for the Gwendolyn Strong Foundation. Now all of us up here can't get the tax receipt but you could still help out and receive a beautiful bracelet in the process.

Tanya is offering to have a bracelet made for you for $45.00 Canadian. This includes 9 personal charms of your choosing. They can be birthstones, initials, photos, whatever you can think of. You will also receive an End SMA charm as part of the fundraiser. It obviously doesn't have to be a memorial bracelet like mine. Please check it out here This is a great opportunity to purchase a beautiful gift and help the fight against SMA. The deadline was actually this past weekend but has been extended for our Canadian and Winnipeg purchasers.

I should say that people almost always notice mine and ask about it. For me, it is often a great opportunity to tell people Georgia's story or about SMA. For you it might be just the chance to show off pictures of your kids or tell them a little bit about yourself.

Love to you all,

Kristen
