Bridging the Gap

Hello! If you are here, it probably means you know and love someone with SMARD (Spinal Muscular Atrophy with Respiratory Distress). SMARD, a genetic neuromuscular disorder, is extremely rare, and there is neither treatment nor cure.

Here at Bridging the Gap, we are hoping to offer a lifeline to families struggling with a SMARD diagnosis. Knowing that SMARD patients are few and far between, we would like to bridge the gap between us, as well as offer support and a community.

Welcome! If you have any questions or are recently diagnosed and don’t know where to begin, email us at
