My name is Amanda Cardoze. I was diagnosed with SMA Type 1 when I was 6 weeks old. I passed away May 13th at 21 months old from a respiratory complication. My mommy and daddy miss me very much but they were awesome parents to me and I did so much in my short life! I got to feel both oceans, I rode a helicopter, I went to the zoo, I swam in many pools, I loved to paint, I went to music class, I danced, I went to many birthday parties, I snuggled with mommy and daddy, I went to a picnic, I was immensely loved, and I just had so much fun here on Earth!
I am now in Heaven having even more fun because here I can run and sing freely! I have many friends up here who were just like me on Earth but are now free of SMA.
Never forget me!
