Condition: Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) Type 2
SMA is a genetic neuromuscular disease. The disease manifests as muscle atrophy and severe weakness, resulting in a loss of common functions like walking, standing, dressing oneself, feeding oneself, etc. SMA is a progressive condition, meaning it gets worse over time. The severest form of SMA, Type 1, kills more babies than any other genetic disease.
