Dr. Kaspar's Clinical Trial is Now Open for Enrollment!

We are extremely excited to share with everyone that enrollment is now open for Dr. Kaspar's Gene Therapy clinical trial (which your donations in memory of Avery went to via Sophia's Cure Foundation)!

Thank you Dr. Kaspar, Sophia's Cure, everyone at Nationwide Children's Hospital, and any other individuals and organizations involved for their hard work and role in making this trial available to children with SMA and their families.

And a special THANK YOU to everyone who donated any amount towards this trial in Avery's name!  Once matched by Nationwide Children's Hospital and the generous anonymous donor, your donations through Sophia's Cure for this trial amounted to $1.5 million dollars!
