Families of SMA Canada (FSMAC) is a charitable organization which funds leading research programs for families affected by Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA). They provide support to Canadian families from the point of diagnosis.
Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) is a motor neuron disease which affects the voluntary muscles that are used for activities such as crawling, walking, head and neck control, and swallowing.
• SMA is the #1 genetic killer of children under two.
