The inspiration for these cast covers is my little grandbaby! He was born with Spina Bifida. A little bit about …it’s a neural tube defect that affects approximately 1 in 1000 babies. Somewhere along the line (around 4 weeks in the womb), the skin fails to close along the spinal column and it the spinal cord, along with all the nerves begin pooling in a thin membrane and grow on the outside of the body (sounds more horrible than it actually is, I assure you!)

What normally happens after birth, is a surgery is performed to tuck everything back inside, and close the hole (that’s the simple part). The hard part is it causes paralysis, bowel, bladder, and other hurdles, like hydrocephalus, where brain fluid pools in the ventricles of the brain. Long story short - Lil S has it all! He had a shunt placed 3 days after he was born. To date, he has endured 4 surgeries and the lil guy is only 3.5 years old.
