Spinal Muscular Atrophy

I was diagnosed with Spinal Muscular Atrophy over 15 years ago and was told there was not much I could do to prevent worsening of my condition. I’ve been working with Lilla for 8 years, and although I have experienced various setbacks during that time, I have actually gained a bit of strength as opposed to losing it, and my doctors have continually encouraged me to keep working with her. I’m no longer fearful of losing my balance when I bend down to pick up something off the ground and standing from a sitting position is much easier. Lilla is the consummate professional. It’s been comforting to have Lilla as part of the professional team on my case!
