Scrapbooking for a cause
The Evening Sun | February 26, 2011 | By Katharine Harmon
Five years ago, after her 6-month-old daughter died of spinal muscular atrophy, Brandy Baugher decided to hold a scrapbooking event in her daughter’s honor and to raise money for a good cause.
It was also a great opportunity to family and friends to come together and remember Emmy Rose who died on Dec. 27, 2006 of the No. 1 genetic killer of children under the age of 2.
“At first, I wasn’t sure if it would keep going,” Baugher said. “But it helped family and friends to talk about it, and know we were helping others.”
Money from the event, which is in its fifth year, goes to the Families of Spinal Muscular Atrophy in memory of Emmy. In five years, the event and donations in Emmy’s honor have reached $27,000, Baugher said.
