For 8 years, the Hunt family has practiced effective Infection Control in their home–they’ve had to, since their daughter, Ella, was diagnosed with Spinal Muscular Atrophy (Type 1). Ella’s condition leaves her vulnerable to any infection, with the risk of pneumonia being one of her greatest dangers.
The Hunts’ regimen has succeeded in preventing ANY transmission of respiratory disease between family members for eight years and counting while allowing all of the Hunts (including Ella) a full and active lifestyle.
Erica Hunt (“Mom”) will be online with A.T. Makers co-founder Bill Binko on Friday at 5pm EDT to give us a tour of their home and walk through how they’ve managed to do it and share her experience with all of us.

We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
