Elijah is a beautiful 4 month old baby boy diagnosed with Spinal Muscualr Atrophy (SMA) Type 1. This is a genetic condition in the form of Motor Neuron degeneration (remember the ice bucket challenge?) that exlusively affects infants and is 100% fatal. There is a glimmer of hope - Elijah is a candidate for a trial drug in the research phase, however there is a possibility he may get the placebo and not the active drug.
In any case, Elijah's parents Andrew and Jess are amazing people who are determined to love and share as many memories as possible with their baby boy - watever the outcome may be. They have written a bucket list to help with this, and the full list is available at Elijah's Bucket List
