We fund research into SMA to find a cure and treatments for Spinal Muscular Atrophy

The SMA Trust is the only UK charity solely focussed on funding research into finding a cure and treatments for Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA). SMA is a genetic disease that affects motor neurones causing progressive muscle weakness and loss of movement. 1 in 40 of us is a carrier and in its most severe form children rarely live beyond 2 years old – making SMA the number 1 genetic cause of death of babies & toddlers. We firmly believe that SMA treatments are within reach and are determined to play our part in making that happen. We are entirely dependent on voluntary donations to continue our work. Our objective - be active and progressive in the search for a cure and treatments for SMA.
