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.
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.
