Story

Spina Bifida is the #1 birth defect in the world with no main cause, it can be hereditary however in most cases the cause is unknown.  Every year over 1600 babies are born with Spina Bifida, approximately 7 in every 10,000 births.


Mission of the Spina Bifida Association of Colorado is to build a better and brighter future for all those affected by Spina Bifida.


We pursue our Mission by educating the public about the latest research on prevention, ex. the intake of folic acid before and during pregnancy.  For those individuals and families already affected we bring them together through multiple activities to see they are not alone in there fight, that we are a community.  We have individuals in their 70's and younger living with Spina Bifida, we can learn from each other how to get through the different stages of life.  We learn how to prevent common medical issues, how to get through school with common learning conditions, how to pursue higher education, job, relationships etc. 


Join us and support Spina Bifida Association of Colorado to educate the world about Spina Bifida and to enhance the lives of people in our community by bringing them together.


Thank you,
