Default Do you know someone with Spina Bifida?

I was looking up Spina Bifida and noticed from the info I was reading that some people have to use braces. Other people could not walk straight so walkers must be used. I do not know anyone who has Spina Bifida in person, so I would not have any personal experiences. If anyone knows a person has someone who has Spina Bifida then shares comments in this post.

I never knew of anyone who had it, untill recently when my neighbour had a visitor who has the condition,this person was not using walkers, they were in a wheel chair, so I am still learning about it, not much I can comment yet.

I have a friend who has it. She uses a wheelchair to get around mostly, but she can walk with relative ease.

I definitely feel bad for those who cannot walk due to certain spinal complications. I to have be blessed that I do not have any problems walking. I feel bad for your friend who has to use a wheelchair to get around. Is she eating some foods with folic acid in it?

I don't know anybody with Spina Bifida, but know quite much about this illness because my father is a doctor.

If you want to know more about this illness go to the category "General discussions (spina bifida)"
Either way it's really nice of you that you have joined this forum because of your good friend.

I just don't know people who have spina bifida where I live. I don't think I may end up meeting anyone with spina bifida.

If there were people in a place to meet with spina bifida that would allow me to learn first hand. Instead I don't see anyone other elderly people at the retirement home.
