A father’s perspective: Our journey to finding a treatment

When Quinn, our soon-to-be-born daughter, didn’t make as much movement in the womb as our other 3 children, my wife, Annie, and I thought we had the “chillest” baby in the world. We joked that she was saving up all her energy for when she entered this world kicking and screaming. Quinn was born in August 2018, and she was the most beautiful little girl. Over the first few months, nothing seemed out of the ordinary. In fact, she appeared healthy and had strong upper body strength. But by the time Quinn’s 9-month check-up came around in June, her physical condition started to change.

      In the latest episode of the SMA News Today Podcast, I interview Abby Quinn and Kristen Bathe, longtime friends who now run an inclusive fashion line for people with disabilities. Abby has SMA Type 3, and lives in Hickory, North Carolina. Kristen lives in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, and through her friendship with Abby she’s learned more about SMA.


      During this interview, we discuss Abby and Kristen’s involvement with the SMA community, the story of their friendship and how it’s evolved, and how they created their fashion line.

      You can also read this written Q&A I did with both in early 2018: https://smanewstoday.com/forums/forums/topic/11323/.
