Roman Dinkel is a 2 y.o. boy with myelomeningocele, a congenital defect of the backbone and spinal cord.
The majority of children diagnosed with this severe form of spina bifida are terminated before birth. At 25 weeks of gestation, however, Roman had surgery while still in the womb. His parents were cautioned not to expect too much from the surgery. But Roman is today able to walk with the aid of crutches.
His joy is infectious.
