What if you were told at the beginning of your life that you had no future?

CRAIG V. ABBOTT was just six months old when he was diagnosed with Spinal Muscular Atrophy Type 1 which has a survival rate of two years.  This genetic disease causes loss of nerve cells in the spinal cord called motor neurons which affects the part of the nervous system that controls voluntary muscle movement.

Craig V. Abbott survived his 22nd birthday and is now the oldest survivor living with Spinal Muscular Atrophy Type 1.

BTC'S HOST KATHY BARRETT interviews CRAIG V. ABBOTT about how he has overcome this life challenge and about the story he so passionately wishes to share with the world.  His book, “Classified Terminally Ill: A Young Man’s Story of Beating the Odds," is in search of a publisher.
