When 13-year-old Layla Brunger from Sittingbourne was one year old, her mum Ann noticed she began to fall over and instinctively knew something wasn’t right. Following tests, Ann was told that Layla was suffering from SMA Spinal Muscular Atrophy, a condition where mobility is impaired through muscle wasting. Her condition deteriorated so much that within two years of diagnosis she needed a wheelchair.
