Baby Ayah Lundt will finally be getting a lifesaving drug after her family hit the 240million target that was required. The drug is the most expensive in the world and it is given just once to a patient.
Raising the huge amount was successful after the family of the 19-month-old embarked on a daily social media fundraising that united all races and people from all walks of life around the world, who donated millions towards the course.
At 10 months old, Baby Ayah was diagnosed with a genetic disorder called spinal muscular atrophy (SMA). The disease has been found in one out of 10,000 children worldwide.
While celebrating the achievement, the family through an Instagram post thanked everyone who participated in different ways to make the campaign successful. They also revealed that the 33 weeks the campaign had been running, they had sleepless nights and tears.
“After 33 weeks of sleepless nights and tears, we are here!!! We want to thank God for bringing us this far, for blessing us immensely even when we fall short of His glory, for guiding us and getting us here. For health and wealth,” that was the good news shared to everyone by the family.
