Kevin suffers from Spina Bifida. It is a birth defect in which the bones of the spine do not form properly around the spinal cord. This can occur anywhere along the spine. Spina bifida is the most common of a group of birth defects called neural tube defects. Kevin was diagnosed with this disease at birth. He is confined to a wheelchair and has no mobility in his lower extremities. He also has rods inserted in his spine. Despite all these restrictions, Kevin continues to smile and try his best.
Kevin now has his own “special pool place” complete with pool table, accessories and even a lighted sign!
