Slay Communications Love Story

FightSMA

When Andrew Slay was diagnosed as a boy with spinal muscular atrophy (SMA), the Slay family knew nothing about neuromuscular diseases. But Joe Slay knew that, when a story is told well and widely, mountains can be moved over time. Joe and his wife Martha founded FightSMA, an international nonprofit corporation, which has raised more than $7 million for childhood neuromuscular disease research and funded research efforts at 44 universities and research institutions in the United States, Canada and Europe. Today there is much new hope for those with SMA thanks to the story of their disease being much better known today.
