2022 Spinal Muscular Atrophy Awareness Month
Good Days Recognizes SMA Awareness Month 2022
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 (Source: National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke; Spinal Muscular Atrophy Fact Sheet).
Each year, August is the month to shine a brighter spotlight on the needs, wants, hopes, and experiences of the SMA community. Good Days supports SMA Awareness Month, which strives to raise awareness of the condition, SMA to better support those impacted by it.
