Health Spotlight: A little boy’s journal of survival

(WISH) — Imagine your baby being born healthy, but, within months, the child starts to lose the ability to move arms and legs.

This is what happens to infants born with spinal muscular atrophy, or SMA.

Without early treatment, most babies will not live to see their second birthday.

But now, there’s new hope.

News 8’s Brittany Noble has the details in Monday’s Health Spotlight.

This story was created from a script aired on WISH-TV. Health Spotlight is presented by Community Health Network.
