Kate is 18 and a high school senior. She loves her special needs cheer team (The Cheer Connection Spirit), Food Network TV, and summer camp. She’s not sure what her plans are after graduation, but she thinks she would like to work with special needs kids in some way. She loves to try new things and even went snow skiing for the first time last year. (She was such a trooper, too! The temperature never got about 15 F!)
Spina Bifida does present challenges, but I have yet to meet a kid with SB who doesn’t rise above the ones that come their way. They are the strongest people I know.
