A journey to the wonder of Africa, Mount Kilimanjaro, 19,308ft, this mountain is marked as the fourth largest mountain in the world.
This is in support of the families of S.M.A and specifically, for Sammy Cavallaro.
Everyday, “MOST OF US” live our lives free and clear of fear – completely oblivious to the possibility that within a blink of an eye, our lives can change forever. Most of the time, the things that really matter are only appreciated once we lose them or when we experience a traumatic event. At that point, a new perspective on life forces us to re-evaluate what is truly important.
A bucket list is well known as a list of things we hope to achieve one day and have the chance to say “I did it” before we “kick the bucket”. Some of life’s potentially greatest moments are put away in the back of our minds, to be experienced at an unknown time or when it conveniently happens by falling on our lap as a coincidence or by a Celestine Prophecy moment, where our energy and minds, without us even knowing, lead us to our destination.
So here I am at a turning point in my life, with so many opportunities to give up or slow down, instead I decided that not only will I do those things but I will also take it to the next level! This is an inspirational journey, an adventure to show everyone that any idea can turn into reality just by never looking back and at every moment taking a proverbial step forward – I’m living my bucket list.
I’m doing this for so many different reasons, but my true inspiration comes down to a special young man, named Sammy Cavallaro with so much against him, he has never looked back, and has always taken on the mentality of looking forward.
With that being said, I feel the need we should all put “Find the cure to S.M.A” on our bucket list. I have, and this is why I am killing two birds with one stone. I will be hiking up Mount Kilimanjaro and at the same time this will be my platform to raise the awareness of S.M.A.
Thanks to the dedication of all the hard working people and donations made out, S.M.A could one day be cured! With many advances and treatments with unprecedented positive reactions that most families could have never dream of have happened and continue to improved.

Sammy was born on August 18th, 2000. A healthy baby boy diagnosed with a spinal Muscular Atrophy (S.M.A), a disease that robs people of physical strenght by affecting the motor nerve cells in the spinal cord, taking away the ability to walk eat, or breathe. It is the number one genetic cause of death for infants.
At the age of 9 months, Sammy’s parents were informed of the devastating news that he was categorized as a type 1, which meant that he was at high risk of dying before his second birthday.
Sammy is now 16 years old!!!
