Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) is a rare genetic muscle wasting disease that is the childhood version of motor neurone disease. The disease not only affects the muscles you see like your arms and legs, but all the muscles you can’t see, like your breathing, coughing and swallowing. SMA is a physical disability only and one’s intelligence is not affected.
