The mission of the Spinal Muscular Atrophy Foundation is to accelerate the development of treatments for SMA.

Spinal Muscular Atrophy is the leading genetic cause of death in young children.

1 in 50 people are carriers of the disease.

Three FDA approved drugs are now available.

More clinical trials are underway.

Mikita, Stephen
