      Welcome to the forum for SMA parents and caregivers. This is a public space for members to ask questions and share experiences. For a privatized space to discuss more personal topics, please join the parents and caregivers group.
      To get things started, I’d like to hear from you all what kind of topics you’d like to discuss here. I’m an SMA patient, so I’m leaving the bulk of the discussion here up to you all. Feel free to reply to this discussion topic or post your own. Thanks for joining us!
