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, my name is Todd, I am the father of an 18 month little boy whom has SMA II. I am blessed to be his caregiver, and everyday brings some type of new joy to my life. I truly am a better person by having the privilege to care for Aleksander, my son. We live outside the Pensacola Florida area. Thank you

Hi there Todd! So happy to have you added to our forum. My name is Kelly, and I am another member of this great place to get to know people. Please feel free to join in on any of the discussions we have here. Hopefully, you will feel encouragement & strength from our experiences. A lot of us have SMA II (myself included) & can give you our own insights into what your child may be going thru, as well as comfort for you as you try to navigate this sometimes confusing world of SMA.
Thanks for introducing yourself Todd! Great to have you here. I’m 25 with Type 2, and I live in Cary, North Carolina. If you ever have any questions about growing up with SMA or anything else, feel free to ask.
Also, are you planning on going to the Cure SMA conference this summer? I’ll be there, and I try to go every year.
