Advocating for those in need
Spinal Muscular Atrophy is the number one genetic killer in infants, and three families in Woodbury have faced it.
Woodbury native Terisa Syvertsen has organized a fundraiser to help these families in need, because it is a disease that few know about.
"It's like any disease or any illness, it's good to get the word out because not a lot of people know about it," she said. "The more I learned about the families and SMA itself, the more I wanted to help."
