Baby Quinn Loses Battle With Spinal Muscular Atrophy

By  | 

FAIRBANKS, Alaska - Back in August, we reported on Quinn Bartholomew and her battle with Spinal Muscular Atrophy.
Yesterday, Baby Quinn lost that battle.
Quinn's Grandfather, and deeply rooted Fairbanks community member, Bob Marok, held several fundraisers for Quinn to help with the cost of her treatment.
'Quinn's RoundUp' and 'Spin for a Cause,' among others, brought in thousands of dollars, and were examples of a town coming together for one family.
Marok says, "The support and caring of the Fairbanks community has been awesome. We are fortunate to be a part of such a caring community."
Quinn brought together a variety of people, from country singer, Ryan Bexley, to fitness studio owner, Tina Ferringer.
At just shy of 9 months old, and despite making improvements with the Spinraza treatments, Quinn will now live on in her family's memories.
