ORLANDO, Fla. (Ivanhoe Newswire) — Spinal muscular atrophy or SMA is the number one genetic cause of death for infants today.

Without feeding tubes and other support methods, about three quarters of babies with type one SMA die before the age of two. Now, there’s new hope.

BOSTON, Mass. (Ivanhoe Newswire) — A lot of us saw our parents do it and many of us have followed in their footsteps.
