Hi all! Ok, here's the deal: from our sad 57 we have now gone to over 100 signatures from the Texas Congressional District #1!! This was brought about by a few things: we went door knocking, I brought the petition to our women's night, and my amazing new friend Nichole! Nichole just moved in across the street from us, and already has proven to not just be a wonderful person, but a wonderful friend. Today, in the 100-degree-with-East-Texas-humidity heat she sat outside the library and filled nearly an entire sheet of the petition. Thank you so much, Nichole. We are so lucky to have a friend like you!
We are also excited because we had an interview with the Longview News-Journal today about Dakin and the SMA Treatment Acceleration Act! The story is set to run Thursday, and we are hoping it will help raise awareness about SMA, SMARD and the Act. Thank you Longview News Journal!!
More updates later!
