Horn Elementary Holding Fundraiser for Bellaire Baby with Deadly Disease

April 20, 2012

Horn Elementary is hosting a fundraiser for Avery Canahauti, a 5-month old baby who has Type I Spinal Muscle Atrophy.

SMA is an incurable genetic disorder that destroys spinal neurons. Avery has lost the use of her legs and is beginning to lose movement in her arms. Doctors have given her 13 months to live.

The fundraiser will be held at Auntie Pasto’s on Sunday, April 22 from 4-9 p.m. dine in or take out. Twenty percent of the proceeds will go directly to the Baby Avery Fund.

Avery is the daughter of Michael and Laura Canahauati. Laura Canahauati is a kindergarten teacher at Horn Elementary.

The Canahauatis are trying to make as many memories with their daughter by doing things on Avery’s “bucket list.”  They have created a blog to share her story and to spread the word about SMA.
