Alliona "Alli" W.

Alli is one year old, and the littlest sister of Malia, Davian, Amaya, and Laveah. She has type 1 spinal muscular atrophy—a terminal genetic disease. “She is such a bright, happy child,” her mother says. “She has big expressive eyes and everyone that meets her loves her right away.”

Alli’s family would like to thank FSMA (Families of SMA), Sophia’s Cure Foundation, the Getty OWL Foundation, and the Gwendolyn Strong Foundation for their support. Allie also has her own web site,
