Arthrogryposis Awareness

Arthrogryposis Awareness Charity

Smokin J's Barbeque AwardsIn 2012, we were blessed with the most beautiful granddaughter in the world and as a result, we diligently are spreading arthrogryposis awareness.

Abby was born with multiple congenital joint contractures throughout her tiny body.

Doctors do not know exactly what causes Arthrogryposis, and even fewer physicians know how to treat a child with this issue.

This lack of muscular development and growth is very difficult for families.

More needs to be done to provide new AMC parents with guidance and medical opportunities to help their child grow to be self-sufficient.

AMC Awareness Day

Shriners Children Hospital in Greenville, South Carolina has a wonderful department of doctors and therapists who recognize the symptoms and provide medical treatment.

Smokin J’s Barbeque is proud to donate a portion of our annual barbecue competition winnings to AMC SUPPORT.ORG

Heck, we even named our Stump SmokerAbby 2.

AMC Support provides resources and materials for families affected by Arthrogryposis.

Contributions allow those with AMC to attend an annual conference free of charge!

The annual conference provides research, networking opportunities, and a chance for AMC’ers to see each other.

Only one in 3,000 babies are born with this rare condition.   AMC does not receive the media attention as other afflictions do.

But with donations to AMCSUPPORT.ORG – education and support can build a community and spread awareness.

We do not expect our barbecue competitors to donate to a charity dear to our hearts.

Have you considered donating a portion of your winnings to a charity that might be close to your heart?

We are all doing something we have a passion for – BARBECUE!

Why not go beyond smoking up good food and help support others?
