Malik Attila Cosby, affectionately known as “MooMoo” was born on May 25, 2000 and slipped peacefully into rest on July 27, 2011.  He was the loving son of Lisa Couser and Attila Cosby.


On May 15, 2001, Malik was diagnosed with SMA (Spinal Muscular Atrophy). This disease was unfortunate and although it left Malik physically disabled, it never broke his spirit or his passion for life

Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) refers to a group of diseases which affect the motor neurons of the spinal cord and brain stem. These critically important cells are responsible for supplying electrical and chemical messages to muscle cells. Without the proper input from the motor neurons, muscle cells can not function properly.

The Malik Attila Cosby Foundation, Inc.’s mission is to provide support to families in the Washington Metropolitan Area (District of Columbia, Maryland and Virginia) with children affected with Spinal Muscular Atrophy, while bringing awareness to the community about this incurable disease.
