Hey friends, we’d love to share a story with you that may help you get to know us & what we’re all about here at Hot Shot Sisters.
In 2017, at 5 months old, our niece was diagnosed with SMA... What is that? We all asked the same question. Spinal Muscular Atrophy. Well, turns out it’s the #1 Genetic cause of death in infants. As Baby Quinn grew older, she grew weaker. Her muscles failed to develop and she began to undergo complications. What should’ve been one of the most joyous times in our families lives, was now consumed in confusion and the everyday struggle of the unknown.
As time ticked by our family discovered a medical drug that could aid in the development of Quinn’s muscles. During that journey to provide Quinn with the best care out there, our family, friends & community gathered to raise funds to help aid in these medical costs. Some of you local to Fairbanks may remember Quinn’s Roundup & Spin for Quinn. Together we raised over $70K for Quinn in this great community.
Sadly, on November 13, 2017 sweet baby Quinn lost her battle with SMA at only 9 months old.
In memory of Quinn, her parents have worked tirelessly to establish @becauseofq to help create awareness and encourage genetic testing in families so that one day, no family has to endure the loss of a child due to a genetic disease.
In October 2019 we introduced you to our very first #hotshotcrusade supporting beCAUSE of Q and their efforts. We continue to invite you to support their mission through our Annual Spinn for Quinn in partnership with Salty's Gives Back.
