Odds were against Nora Gooden turning two
WVLT | January 25, 2011
East Knoxville, Tenn (WVLT) — Most parents will tell you that first birthdays, becoming a teenager at age 13, and then turning 18, a young adult, are major milestones to celebrate.
But for one East Knoxville family, seeing their daughter turn two is huge, and encouraging news.
Nora Gooden’s second birthday celebration is one her family will always cherish.
Her mother, Jaime Gooden says, “90 percent of SMA kids don’t make it to two 2, so we have now entered that elite category of children of ten percent who make it past the two mark. So it is a huge milestone for us.”
Nora’s favorite celebrity, Mini Mouse even made a surprise appearance at her party on Sunday.
Mom says, “Nora just lit up. It was priceless.”
