Transcript: 
This is SMA. And this is our story. Two people have a chance meeting while at a bar with some friends one night. They hit it off. They go on a first date. They fall deeply in love. Get married. And start a family. Neither of them knows they both carry the gene responsible for spinal muscular atrophy (SMA), the leading genetic killer of young children. With every pregnancy, their children will have a 25% chance of being born with this brutal degenerative, terminal disease. They only learn about SMA after their child is diagnosed. There is no treatment. There is no cure. This is SMA. It is the story for thousands of families around the world. And it could be your story too.
