Welcome to our weekly roundup here at “5 Minutes Around the Blogosphere”.
As you know, you can come back all week and add a post or giveaway to our Mister Linky. Be sure to check back often, as new links will be added daily. You don’t want to miss out on something fun.
- Please take the time to read about Victoria and her 16 month old daughter who has a terminal disease called Spinal Muscular Atrophy, or SMA. It is the #1 genetic killer of infants and the medical community is very close to a cure, but they need a bill passed that’s in Congress right now.
Victoria and her husband started an online petition and they need 100,000 signatures so that they can be taken to Congress in the Spring. It will help the SMA community show that people DO care about this bill. Please take a moment to sign the petition.
