My name is Erika. I was born April 1991 with Spina Bifida at Huntsville Hospital. Not even 24 hours old, I was transported to Children's where I had my first spine closure surgery. Doctors told my parents I wouldn't make it pass the age of 3, 4 or 5 but here I am at almost 19. I was at Children's until I turned 18 last April. It is a great place.
