What is Spina Bifida?
Spina Bifida is the most common permanently disabling birth defect in the United States.
Spina Bifida literally means “split spine.”
Spina Bifida happens when a baby is in the womb and the spinal column does not close all of the way. Every day, about 8 babies born in the United States have Spina Bifida or a similar birth defect of the brain and spine.
Your gift will help The Spina Bifida Association of Iowa support research to find and provide much-needed services to those affected. By becoming a part of The SBAIA family and making your gift today, you will help sustain hope in thousands of people affected by Spina Bifida.
