4 People Who Have Something to Say About SMA and MD


The following videos show how people living with muscular dystrophy (MD) and spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) can smash the stereotypes associated with having a disability, and lead rich and full lives.

First up is 35-year-old Michael Klinkhamer, who has Becker muscular dystrophy. In this video shared by Story Hive, Michael explains that he spends all of his time advocating for people with the disease. Michael also helps young people living with the condition realize that they can be more independent than they think with the right guidance.

Michael also explains that people with MD enjoy all the same things as those who don’t have the disease. While they may have to do things slightly differently or do them much more slowly, they can still have the same life experiences.
