What In The World Is Spinal Muscular Atrophy Type Two

I have what is considered a rare disease called Spinal Muscular Atrophy Type Two. I am therefore a full time wheelchair user because I cannot walk. I employ 4 home care workers that provide me with community based services and support in order for me to lead an interdependent life within the community. I live in my own apartment in Rochester, New York. SMA affects my muscles. To learn more about SMA, use the Google search function. Type in Spinal Muscular Atrophy and you'll find lots of information. Or you can always email me at with questions you might have about my disability. I am an open book. You can also find me on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn by searching my name, Jensen Caraballo.
