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.

Georgia's Journey of Hope 2011

Well, despite the lower numbers this year we still managed to raise at least $8500 including our online donations. Thank you to everyone who donated, came to have fun, wore a t-shirt or simply told somebody about SMA. Thank you as well to everyone who has sent emails and offered words of encouragement.

We will definitely do it again next year but are hoping that we will be able get a few more families in through the door. The only way to ever end SMA will be to continue educating others and trying to raise funds. I am very open to any suggestions anybody has regarding the event and would love to hear your feedback.

I will try to post some pictures in the next few days.

Love to you all,

Kristen

  1. Maybe you already did this and I missed it, but you can send in an announcement for your event to CTV and they'll air it.
