Rod Miloschew from Melbourne Australia is 48 years old . He was born with Myelomeningocele Spina Bifida . He doesn’t have Hydrocephalus! Rod also has a Illeostomy and uses a wheelchair to get him around places . He’s pretty healthy besides having a occasional UTI ( urinary tract infection).
Growing up, as far as home goes, Rod’s mother and father treated him like a "normal" kid. They didn't even see Rod as having a disability. Rod has a sister named Debbie about 2 years younger than him.
As kids, they used to fight & carry on like young siblings do. Now they get along really good. Rod and Debbie go out everywhere. She watches out for Rod and absolutely hates it with a passion when someone starts to stare at her brother . Debbie gives them real bad looks.
During his childhood , Rod was heavily into sports. He used to play wheelchair basketball & participated in wheelchair racing. Rod even got to represent his state on several occasions! It took him all over Australia!
As a kid, Rod had always dreamt of becoming a firefighter. About 19 years ago, Rod applied to his local Fire Brigade to be a volunteer. They accepted him with no questions aske. Another dream Rod hopes to achieve is finding the love of his life .
