"I live in the suburbs of Paris with my two boys: Arthur, 8 and Oscar 5. Oscar is the reason I am involved. He was diagnosed with SMA type 2 when he was 1 year old. Since then, it has been a daily struggle; setting up his care, adapting and equipping his living spaces, access to school. We are well supported by our family and friends even if they cannot understand this daily struggle. Today a treatment is available, after the happiness, I have to readapt our life, to answer to Oscar's new needs and to manage the hope that this gives rise to.
