Spinal Muscular Atrophy Awareness Month – August 2018 | Here to receive the proclamation were Amanda Camp, Jeremy Camp and Asher Camp. Spinal Muscular Atrophy can affect any race, ethnicity, or gender and is the number one genetic cause of death for infants under two. Spinal Muscular Atrophy affects approximately one in 11,000 babies, and one in 50 Americans is a genetic carrier. Finding a cure for Spinal Muscular Atrophy will require increased public awareness of the disease, the need for increased research and screening, and the challenges it presents to patients and their families.
