Community Throws Parade For 3-Year-Old Who Wasn’t Expected To Live Past 2

A community came together to do the sweetest thing for a young boy.

A Chicago mother named Brittany Stineman shared doctors told her that her son Nash wouldn’t make it see his second birthday. Nash suffers from a rare neuromuscular disease known as SMARD, or spinal muscular atrophy with respiratory distress, CNN notes. The disease causes muscle weakness and a sudden inability to breathe in infants. The news site notes that It has no cure or treatment.

Despite that, little Nash turned 3 and his parents along with a few people from their community celebrated his special day by throwing him a birthday parade. It was said that for over an hour, more than 100 cars drove down the family’s neighborhood street in a Chicago suburb to wish Nash a very happy birthday. Stineman told CNN:

“The one missing piece of his life has been social interaction. He can’t be around people that much, and yesterday, I felt like that missing piece was filled.”

Overwhelmed with seeing how many people came out for little Nash, Stineman said it all felt so surreal.

“The parade showed her that there is so much support for her family, and she is optimistic about what is to come.”

She said because of the support from the community, she is optimistic about what is to come.

“It was a magical day,” Stineman said. “It just made me feel so much more hopeful about what the next year could bring.”
