IamA man with Spinal Muscular Atrophy Type 2 AMA!
I am Donavan and I have SMA II leaving me wheelchair bound. SMA II is part of a group of disorders that affect the control of muscle movements. It is caused by a loss of specialized nerve cells, called motor neurons, in the spinal cord and the part of the brain that is connected to the spinal cord (the brainstem). The loss of motor neurons leads to weakness and wasting (atrophy) of muscles used for activities such as crawling, walking, sitting up, and controlling head movement. I have feeling throughout my body.
