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.’”
Hey everyone! Hope you’re all having a great week so far. Check out the latest installment of the SMA News Today Podcasthere.
In episode 52, I talk with my coworker Luisa Palazola, a Community Manager for SMA News Today. Luisa is from Memphis, Tennessee, and she has another rare genetic condition called cystic fibrosis. During this conversation, she talks about her story and advocacy work, what she’s learned about SMA through her work here, and the upcoming event Rare Disease Day.
Great discussion! It’s easy to draw parallels between SMA & CF. Thanks for sharing your experiences Luisa. You’ve got an awesome spirit. Glad to get to know you even more with this podcast. Keep up the great work with the social media campaigns!
