Guadalupe (Lupita) 8-years old
Surgery will Resolve most of her Challenges!
Lupita lacks sensitivity to bowel urges and requires braces to walk. Born with Myelomeningocele, the most severe form of spina bifida, generally requires surgery to correct the spinal defect and prevent infections, further injury or trauma to the exposed spinal cord and nerves.
We provided medical treatment and braces.
On June 19th she began a series of tests and evaluations and on June 20th we received word that she is not a candidate for surgery. Instead, there is a complex brace that will help her to walk better, but at this time there is no solution to her inability to control her bowels.
