    Welcome to the adults with SMA forum. I’m Kevin Schaefer, and I have SMA type II. You can read my weekly column “Embracing My Inner Alien” here on the SMA site, and listen to the SMA News Today podcast.

    To start the discussion here, I’d like you all to provide just a brief introduction of yourselves and why you’re here. What do you hope to gain from this forum and what are some topics you’d like to discuss here? Keep in mind that this forum is public. For a more privatized discussion please join the SMA patients group.

    This forum is for all SMA adults. Some of us are working professionals, while others are either in school or possibly looking for work. Regardless of where you are in life, this is a place for you to share tips and experiences, ask questions and simply connect with other SMA adults.

    Thanks for joining us!

      Hi Federica, thanks for joining us!

      Yes here at SMA News Today we regularly cover information about drug therapies and daily life. We have a forum here specifically about Spinraza. I’m also very interested in discussing daily life with various SMA patients.

      Also, if you have a specific question in mind or a topic you’d like to discuss, feel free to create posts here anytime. We value every user’s input.
