Early Action. Early Treatment. Saves Lives.
Cure SMA is dedicated to the treatment and cure of spinal muscular atrophy (SMA), a rare genetic neuromuscular disease, characterized by progressive deterioration of alpha motor neurons which leads to paralysis and death if left untreated. It remains the leading congenital cause of death amongst children under the age of two.
Since 1984, we’ve directed and invested in research that has shaped the scientific community’s understanding of SMA. We are currently on the verge of breakthroughs that will strengthen bodies, extend life, and lead to a cure. With a new, effective treatment now available and other promising treatments on the horizon, Cure SMA’s SMART Moves wants all parents and healthcare professionals to:
- Know the critical SMA signs, and how it affects motor development
- Access the necessary tools and resources to take swift action to diagnose
