Laurence "Wyatt" Holter was born a month premature on August 6, 2012 to Josh and Katie Holter. Josh currently serves his country in the U.S. Air Force and Katie is a lifetime resident of Warner Robins. Wyatt appeared to be a healthy, baby boy when he was born.
On September 12, Katie noticed Wyatt was no longer scratching his face or fighting diaper changes. He had stopped moving his arms and legs. Josh and Katie took him to the doctor and he was admitted to the Children's Hospital in Macon. They began a series of tests and finally a diagnosis, Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) Type I. The most aggressive of the 4 types of SMA. Baby Wyatt has proven himself to be a fighter and a true blessing to Josh and Katie. They have a tough journey ahead of them both emotionally and financially. They need our support! Please help us to ease their financial burden while we raise awareness for SMA.
