In this WXYZ-TV Detroit video shared in March 2015, meet Scarlet and her loving family. Scarlet is a typical 2 1/2-year-old girl in many ways — bright, funny, and very talkative — but she has spinal muscular atrophy.
Diagnosed with Type 2 SMA at 10 months old when she failed to meet usual development milestones, Scarlet, unable to use her legs and has limited movement in her arms, is a treasure. The video reveals how the family deals with the disease.
