Hello ! My name is Jovana ! I am 36yrs old and from Melbourne Florida. I am 35 years old. I was born with Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus. My life has not been easy, but I wouldn't change it for anything! In and out of hospitals for as long as I can recall for countless surgeries.
When I was born my parents were told I would not live to be a teen and if by some miracle I do I'd be a vegetable the rest of my life. I proved them all wrong because not only did I exceed the age limit they gave I am also able to walk with the use of a walker.
I am also a mother . I have a son who is 10 years old , which I was also told I would never be able to have kids. I am thankful for each day that I am given. My story shows how strong we really are as a person with this birth defect
