Mission Statement

Cure SMA leads the way to a world without spinal muscular atrophy, the number one genetic cause of death for infants. We fund and direct comprehensive research that drives breakthroughs in treatment and care, and we provide families the support they need for today.

Description

Cure SMA is dedicated to the treatment and cure of spinal muscular atrophy (SMA)--a disease that takes away a person’s ability to walk, eat, or breathe. It is the number one genetic cause of death for infants.

Since 1984, we’ve directed and invested in comprehensive research that has shaped the scientific community’s understanding of SMA. We are currently on the verge of breakthroughs in treatment that will strengthen our children’s bodies, extend life, and lead to a cure.

We have deep expertise in every aspect of SMA--from the day-to-day realities to the nuances of care options--and until we have a cure, we’ll do everything we can to support children and families affected by the disease.

Learn more about how you can help us reach a treatment and cure at www.cureSMA.org.
