Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) is the #1 genetic killer
of children under two. SMA is a devastating and
relatively common children's genetic disease.
While other organizations are working hard to find a
treatment or cure, the Claire Altman Heine Foundation
uses its funding to identify carriers of SMA,
support population based SMA carrier screening,
raise awareness of SMA and educate
the public and medical communities about SMA.
