Shane Burcaw is a twenty-five-year-old young man with SMA, spinal muscular atrophy. This means that his muscles are getting smaller and weaker as he grows older, leaving his head bigger in relation to his body, and making him reliant on his family for help to meet his basic needs. This book explains how Shane lives with SMA and that he’s not as different as people might think.
