In the Fall of 2010 we held an event for Jadon’s Hope Foundation’s “Climb4SMA” and this poem was read.
We have always considered Jadon to be a superhero. Not only because of all he endures, which is an incredible amount, but also because we believe he has purpose in God’s plan. A BIG, BIG purpose. One that we may or may not completely understand. When Jadon celebrated his 1st Birthday in June of 2010 we felt he had surpassed a HUGE milestone as only 50% of children with SMA live to do so, and only 10% live to celebrate their 2nd. As we look at the calendar, we stand in amazement that in just one week, Jadon “The Bug” will be SIX YEARS OLD.
We could not be prouder of our little SuperBug.
Congratulations on Jadon’s sixth birthday! Our family is only 8 months into our battle, and I know how hard you have all worked to keep Jadon healthy. He is a handsome young man, you are so lucky.
