This October, let’s come together to raise awareness, offer support, and spread knowledge about Spina Bifida.

Spina Bifida is a congenital condition that affects the spinal cord and can impact a person’s life in various ways.

What is Spina Bifida?

Spina Bifida is a neural tube defect that occurs during early pregnancy when the spinal column doesn’t close properly. This can lead to varying degrees of disability, affecting mobility and sometimes leading to other health issues.

By coming together this October, we can create a world where individuals with Spina Bifida are supported, understood, and can lead fulfilling lives. Let’s make a positive impact on the lives of those affected by Spina Bifida and strive for a more inclusive society. ­č嬭čĺÜ
