Spina Bifida Jacksonville is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded in 1973 to provide support for families living with spina bifida. Spina bifida is the most permanently disabling birth defect in the United States. An average of 8 babies every day are born with Spina Bifida or a similar birth defect of the brain and spine.
Children born with spina bifida can present with varying levels of severity and symptoms. Our gaol is to create a network of support by connecting local families with medical professionals to create a forum that allows the exchange of information and emotional support from experienced individuals.
