Wristbands To Support Spinal Muscular Atrophy Awareness Month
Spinal Muscular Atrophy Awareness Month
August has been set aside as Spinal Muscular Atrophy Awareness Month. A little-known disease, spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) is the number-one genetic cause of death for infants. SMA impacts the part of the nervous system that controls voluntary muscle movement. Because it can severely limit a person’s bodily control, SMA is a disease people want to know more about. That’s where Spinal Muscular Atrophy Awareness Month comes in. Through awareness that is raised during Spinal Muscular Atrophy Awareness Month, funds are raised so researchers can find out more.

The people behind Cure SMA are excited about Spinal Muscular Atrophy Awareness Month because they find it to be a good way to spotlight their awareness efforts. During this Awareness Month, people are encouraged to host an awareness-themed fundraiser, join in a group candle-lighting, post to social media, and more. One way to create solidarity around all of those efforts is through customized awareness wristbands, which can be given away as reminders or sold as a fundraiser. Because they can be made in any color, the wristbands could mimic the orange and purple colors of the Cure SMA organization. They can also be imprinted with messages like "There’s reason for hope: Let’s find a cure for SMA".
About Spinal Muscular Atrophy
SMA is a genetic disease—it is not contagious. According to the Muscular Dystrophy Association, SMA involves the loss of nerve cells in the spinal cord. The main symptom of SMA is weakness in voluntary muscles, including those in the shoulders, hips, thighs, and upper back. In many forms of the disease, sensory, mental, and emotional functioning remain normal. While much has been discovered about the disease, more remains to be learned. Which is why the efforts behind Spinal Muscular Atrophy Awareness Month are so important.
