Mission Statement

To accelerate the search for a treatment and cure for spinal muscular atrophy (SMA), the number-one inherited cause of infant death.

Languages available:  Select English 

Since its creation in 1991 as "Andrew's Buddies," FightSMA has worked to bring higher levels of awareness and understanding of spinal muscular atrophy (SMA). It began its crusade with a successful 30-day campaign to raise $100,000 to supply researchers with vital gene-search equipment. FightSMA has brought attention to the disease, winning praise from the White House, Congress, and the National Institutes of Health (NIH), generating news coverage, and its programs have won numerous awards from various community and professional organizations.
