Bringing understanding and awareness to Spinal Muscular Atrophy

Thanks to State Representative Dan Swanson, the Illinois House has helped mark August as Spinal Muscular Atrophy Awareness Month. The affliction has, at times, put quite the strain on one local family. Swanson presented a copy of the SMA resolution to Randy and Tracy Parlier of Galesburg, whose daughter Lily is afflicted. Will Stevenson talked with Swanson and the Parlier family on Galesburg’s Evening News.
