This MDA video–a part of its Live Unlimited initiative– is all about Haley Frieler. Haley was diagnosed with spinal muscular atrophy at two years old and has spent her life in a wheelchair. She hasn’t let her SMA get in the way of achieving her goal of working in the fashion industry, as she says “if there’s a will, there’s a way!”.
The Muscular Dystrophy Association’s Live Unlimited initiative aims to raise awareness and funds for muscular dystrophy, SMA and ALS, by allowing people to showcase what they can do with their lives if they refuse to believe the word “can’t.”
