 Spinal Muscular Atrophy is the number one genetic killer of infants.  SMA destroys the nerves controlling movement and breathing.

1 in 40 people carry the genetic cause of the disease – 500,000 are carriers in New York State.

1 in 6,000 live births are affected.

There is no cure or treatment for this brutal disease.  But there is tremendous hope for a breakthrough in the near future from ongoing research and clinical trials.  Families of SMA is the leading charity supporting research to find a cure. The Greater NY Chapter of Families of SMA supports over 500 families in the local area.
