    Planes, Trains, & Accessible Travel With SMA

    Talk to your doctor to determine if you or your child is fit to travel.

    Traveling with a child is never easy. Traveling with a child in a wheelchair is an extra challenge. The first time Leah flew on an airplane, she was six months old, almost a year before she was diagnosed. We have always been a traveling family and once she was diagnosed, we were both hopeful and determined that it wouldn’t hold us back.

    I have always flown with Leah by myself, just the two of us. Call me crazy; it’s OK, I am. There are some things we have learned that have made it so much easier for us.

      I would like to raise better awareness and gain better knowledge of sma type 0. My son was born with sma type 0, and I have been trying to reach out/branch out to other families or caregivers to find out about there experience with type 0. I have learned alot about it but there aren’t many studies done on type 0. If you have any advice or information I would greatly appreciate it.  Thank you all and god bless

      Victoria, thank you for bringing this topic to our attention. It really doesn’t get talked about in the SMA community, and this is something we want to fix. Michael and I are already having conversations about doing research on this, and we will keep you updated. Thanks again.

      If you guys know of any websites I can go to and read about on that would be awesome to.  I am already a part of cure sma and they have been a huge help.

        Us and Cure SMA are the top sources for SMA information. Are you going to try to go the Cure SMA conference this summer? I’ll be there.

      As with many, I am unfamiliar with type 0. May I ask what led to the type 0 diagnosis? I myself am type 2 as I’ve never walked. Typically type is determined by age of diagnosis and milestones reached. Although I know types and knowledge of types is important, I believe what is most important is unconditional love and acceptance. Did you have any specific questions? Even though types differ many of us can give insight on SMA issues.
