" - Soulumination
in honor of Skylar


Skylar was born on April 4, 2005. He is the son of Keith and Sheila and the brother of Monica and Chandler, who are both 11 years old.

Skylar was growing and developing normally until he was nine months old, when he started to lose strength and control in his legs. Just before his first birthday, he was diagnosed with SMA Type II/III. Two weeks later, he came down with a severe case of flu and entered Children’s Hospital in Seattle. He has remained there, on and off a ventilating machine until being fitted with a tracheotomy tube. His parents say he has “been doing pretty well with it,” and look forward to the day when they can bring Skylar home. Through all of this “busy and scary time,” his parents say, Skylar has received “all kinds of prayers and good wishes from friends and family and even people we don’t know.” Keith and Sheila say they are “very thankful to have such good friends and family.”
