Time for another FightSMA Featured Family! This time we get to meet a wonderful woman named Natalia Escárate, from Valparaíso, Chile:
I’m 30 years old, I was diagnosed when I was 3 or 4 through a biopsy, but in 2009 I was subjected to genetic testing. When I was a child I received physical and hydrotherapy, but currently I just go to medical checkups (Physiatrist and Bronchopulmonary) about twice a year because I suffer a lot from pneumonia. I studied English Translation at the university. I’m working as a freelance English teacher at the moment. I work mostly with children because I really love them!
Thanks so much to Natalia for writing in!
