The Problem

Spinal Muscular Atrophy is the #1 genetic killer of infants and young children. There is currently no treatment and no cure. SMA is a degenerative disease and hinders the ability to walk, stand, eat, speak, and breathe. SMA alters every aspect of life - but it never impacts the desire to pursue one's dreams.

The Solution Offered by The Gwendolyn Strong Foundation

The Gwendolyn Strong Foundation was founded in honor of Gwendolyn Strong, an inspiring little girl born with Spinal Muscular Atrophy. Their Project Mariposa program donates tablets to children disabled by SMA, making access to education, entertainment, independence, and communication possible. These tablets are life changing for kids with SMA because of the light weight, portability, and featherlight touch screen and empower these amazing children to do the things all children love.


Gwendolyn Strong Foundation

Inspired by the life of a brave little girl named Gwendolyn, the Gwendolyn Strong Foundation is a nonprofit organization dedicated to increasing global awareness of Spinal Muscular Atrophy, accelerating research focused on ending this cruel disease, and supporting families impacted by SMA and other life-altering conditions.
