At 6 months old, JP was diagnosed with Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA), an incurable disease which severely limits physical movement by affecting the motor nerve cells in the spinal cord.
Walking into JP's bedroom, it's impossible to miss the breathing machine or the feeding tubes. But other than that, JP is just like any other 4 year old -- JP loves celebrating birthdays (mostly getting gifts), having books read to him, watching TV (even when he's not supposed to), spending time with family and friends and playing video games (thanks to amazing new technology).
As JP is getting older and his needs are changing, he will need a special transportation van equipped with a wheelchair ramp in order to get around. Without it, he will not be able to get to the hospital for treatment, go on family trips, or do any of the other activities that make him so happy.
On behalf of the Alex Malyarovich (beneficiary and JP's father), I would like to ask your help in raising funds for the purchase of the transportation van either by making a contribution (no amount is too small) or by sharing this post across the Facebook community.
I hope we can come together as a community for this very special boy.
