2021 Spinal Muscular Atrophy Awareness Month
Spinal Muscular Atrophy Awareness Month 2021
August is SMA Awareness Month!
Spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) is a group of hereditary diseases that progressively destroys motor neurons—nerve cells in the brain stem and spinal cord that control essential skeletal muscle activity such as speaking, walking, breathing, and swallowing, leading to muscle weakness and atrophy.
