Help an RSS/SGA Family Today
Do you know a child with Russell-Silver syndrome or born small-for-gestational-age?
Colten, born SGA, was 7 ½ years old and the size of a 4-year-old before his mother discovered the MAGIC Foundation and found help. This photo of Colton and a classmate shows just how apparent his growth failure was … and yet local doctors kept telling the parents “to wait and see.” Kaley was 1-year-old and diagnosed with the very rare Russell-Silver syndrome when her parents found MAGIC, and found answers, found support.
MAGIC and its RSS/SGA Research & Education Fund are able to operate each year thanks to directed donations from family, friends and sometimes strangers. The only non-profit in the U.S. for RSS/SGA families, we accomplish a tremendous amount on a very small annual budget. This coming year we hope to add three highlighted projects in addition to our ongoing services – an SGA pediatrician education brochure and campaign, a distribution campaign for our new “Transitioning to Adulthood” brochures (both physician and young adults), and a 40-page+ research update to our current RSS/SGA Guidebook, as well as several other new projects.
RSS/SGA families already know how much they can accomplish with the power of support. Our “Power of Five” campaign strives to continue this message.
Support the RSS or SGA child you know with a $5 donation by making a donation now, and share this link with everyone you know. Let’s demonstrate the power that even a $5 donation can make when large groups of people join together with one voice.
The MAGIC Foundation is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization and any donation is tax-deductible as per IRS guidelines.
