Hey everyone, here’s Michael’s newest column. He has talked about his daughter Ella’s singing hobby before, and she has now started songwriting, too. While it’s important for any kid, I think it’s even more important for kids with SMA to find an extra-curricular activity to excel at. For me, it was, and still is, chess. I can’t compete at anything physical, but beating people at chess has always given me a sense of pride. I want to encourage any parents here to help your child find something like that. To anyone else, what activity or hobby has been valuable in your life?
