Spina Bifida of Jacksonville – Support for Patients and Families
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 common permanently disabling birth defect in the United States. An average of 8 babies everyday are born with Spina Bifida or a similar birth defect of the brain and spine.
Our goal is to create a network of support for local families. Spina Bifida Jacksonville strives to advocate for, educate and serve patients and families whose lives have been touched by Spina Bifida.
A significant part of our advocacy and service is our “Love What Drives You” campaign. This initiative brings together the automotive community and the families we support to ensure they remain engaged and have access to necessary resources and medical care.
One way we’re making this happen is by updating vans with ramps and/or adaptive steering equipment and hand controls, which we then donate to families in need.
