Living With SMA Can Challenge the Health, Stability of Married Couples

In 2010, I married the love of my life. My husband at the time had joined the Marine Corps and was stationed in North Carolina. Even though it was 700 miles away from our family and friends, we were excited to venture out together as newlyweds. What we weren’t aware of, or prepared for, was the several denials from insurance companies for in-home care.

Prior to getting married, we were told we wouldn’t have any issues getting the care I needed. We felt confident in what we were told and began the process immediately upon arriving in North Carolina.
