How different generations living with SMA can teach one another

Meet Regina and Al. Their friendship and respect for one another all started at a fundraiser before a Phillies baseball game in 2019. “I watched Regina give a beautiful speech at the event about her recently diagnosed son, Shane,” recalled Al. “I thought to myself, ‘My friends at Cure SMA need to meet this amazing mom and get her involved.’”

      Hi everyone! Happy Friday! I thought I’d share one of my recent blog posts in celebration of Avengers coming out this weekend. I’m not a die-hard superhero fan, but Arrow is the one show I keep up with. My favorite character, Felicity Smoak, is leaving at the end of this season, so I wanted to write a little dedication to her.

      The character Felicity is based on, Overwatch, is in a wheelchair. There was a several-episode arc in season four where Felicity was in a wheelchair, and the disability representation, while imperfect, meant a lot to me as a college student who had never really seen herself in media. I will always remember those episodes fondly.

      Do you have a favorite example of disability representation?

      I love Arrow too.  I actually liked Felicity, but I got burned out in season 6. The “Olicity” thing got so old.
