Keep on reading to see how these artists contribute to this Charity Art Auction — “Art For All”.
In this charity art auction, more than 20 artists are donating their paintings in order to raise funds for children and adults with Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA).
What is SMA?
Spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) is a genetic disease that progressively weakens the muscles of babies and small children. Consequently. It can lead to problems with walking, swallowing and breathing. There is currently no cure for SMA, and is the most common genetic cause of mortality in infants. But even so, SMA does not affect intelligence. Children and adults with SMA often go on to do very well academically.
