Because SMA is not a well-known disease, we must take a pro-active stand to educate ourselves and our communities about this devastating disease. The following websites are organizations which provide information and support for family and friends who have been affected by Spinal Muscular Atrophy.

Families of SMA
In 1984, a small group of parents across the country banded together to support, comfort and educate each other about the devastating disease affecting their children; Spinal Muscular Atrophy. Their purpose was twofold—to support families affected by SMA and to fund research leading to a treatment and eventually, a cure. Families of SMA has grown to an international network including 30 volunteer Chapters throughout the United States

This is a national organization committed to accelerating a cure for spinal muscular atrophy (SMA), the number-one inherited killer of children under two. On this site, you will find up-to-date reports from the research front. And you will find ways that you can become involved in this fight yourself.
