Short Bio

My name is Michael Morale. I was born in 1965 and was raised in Dallas, Texas. It wasn’t until 1998 that I found out the exact name of my disease.  Scientists had located the gene that properly diagnosed me with Spinal Muscular Atrophy. After extensive blood work, and other genetic tests, I was informed that I had SMA Type 3. In February 2017, I learned about a new treatment that had been fast tracked through the FDA by a pharmaceutical company by the name of Biogen.  The treatment that they developed was called Spinraza. As you follow my videos, you will learn the process that I had to take to become a candidate for this new treatment. My story will be ongoing and will continue for the rest of my life, so please join me in learning a little bit about this treatment and how this treatment could change millions of lives. My prayers are that this new treatment will allow me to gain muscle strength and become more independent in my daily life.
