Spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) is a rare, genetic neuromuscular disease. In its most common form, Type I SMA (~60% of cases), symptoms begin in infancy. Affected children never sit up, and they rapidly develop difficulty swallowing and breathing, eventually requiring feeding tubes and mechanical ventilation. Without treatment, children typically die by age 2
