Spina Bifida
Neil Richey

I was born with spina bifida and my bladder was on the outside and my rectum wasn't formed, my hipbones were out of place, and I had one functioning kidney.

If it wasn't for the doctors at Children’s Hospital I don't think I would be here today; and the grace of God. They made a big difference in my life.
