Just because you have spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) doesn’t mean you can’t live a rich and fulfilling life. Young adults with SMA want the same things as young adults without SMA: go to college, get a job they enjoy, live independently. However, they may need a little bit of help along the way.
We’ve put together a list of resources that will help young adults with SMA achieve these life goals based on information from the Muscular Dystrophy Association.
There are many organizations out there to help young adults with SMA realize their dream of a college education. They can help with scholarships, financing college courses and choosing the right university.
