SEMMES, Alabama — Thanks to Magic Moments, an organization established in 1984 in Alabama to grant non-medical wishes to children 4-18 living in Alabama with life-threatening or life-altering medical conditions, there is a new saltwater swimming pool in Semmes at the house of Chris Martin.

Martin’s 8-year-old daughter, Maddy, was diagnosed with spinal muscular atrophy when she was only 7 months old. The disease has left Maddy with muscles too weak to lift her arms or move her legs.

“She can’t move at all out of the water except to wiggle her fingers, but in the water, she can move more. She giggles and laughs,” said Martin.

He discovered Maddy’s ability to move in water when they went on family vacations and stayed in a place with a swimming pool.
