MEMBER OF THE MONTH:
January Member of the Month is Matilda T. Matilda turns one year old this month! Her mother writes: "We found out about our baby's Spina Bifida at the 20 week ultrasound. We discovered that we were candidates for prenatal myelomeningocele repair so just a couple weeks later, my baby and I had surgery together at Children's Hospital of Wisconsin. After 3 months of bed rest for mom, our little girl Matilda was born full-term. She stayed in the NICU for only 3 days before we were discharged from the hospital together. Matilda has not required a shunt or any other surgical intervention so far. She is growing up fast and learning how to keep up with her big brother. Every week, we work with her physical therapist to optimize mobility and leg strength. She amazes us every day with her big smile." Matilda is a Toddler On The Move with her new ZipZac!
