Spina Bifida is the most common permanently disabling birth defect compatible with life. Individuals living with Spina Bifida can experience mobility limitations including paralysis, incontinence, gastrointestinal disorders, learning disabilities, and executive dysfunction. In addition, individuals living with Spina Bifida are more likely to have hydrocephalus requiring the placement of a shunt, anxiety and depression, social challenges, latex allergy, and issues with weight management. Overall, Spina Bifida can impact a person’s ability to walk, learn, socialize, and live independently. Funds raised at Dare to Dream support SBANENY in responding to the evolving needs of the Spina Bifida community via programs and services.
